DOL Cancels Manchester Job Corps Center Project Solicitation Amid PLA Concerns Raised by AGC

The Department of Labor canceled the Manchester New Hampshire Job Corps Center construction solicitation due to concerns surrounding a project labor agreement (PLA) requirement.

In September, AGC of America, in cooperation with AGC of  New Hampshire, sent a letter to the Department of Labor expressing concerns about the agency's decision to include a PLA mandate in solicitations related to the construction of a new Job Corps Center in Manchester, N.H., and demanding information about the agency's justification and decision-making process. Read more here.

DOL today announced that the solicitation was cancelled because it believes that “it is in the public interest for the Department to further evaluate the issues involved in the PLA requirement” as it is a new issue to DOL.

AGC is also trying to stay informed about federal agency PLA activity.  If your chapter becomes aware of any PLA mandates on federal or federally assisted construction projects, please send information to Marco Giamberardino at
