Urges Trump Administration to Repeal and Replace 

This week AGC and others sent a letter urging President-Elect Trump’s administration to repeal President Obama’s executive order that encourages federal agencies to require project labor agreements (PLAs) on federal construction projects exceeding $25 million, and replace it with a policy that prevents agencies from forcing contractors to enter into a labor agreement as a condition for winning a federal construction contract.  AGC also requested this PLA reform when it recently shared its federal agency regulatory, compliance and enforcement plan with members of the Trump Presidential Transitional Team.

AGC neither supports nor opposes contractors’ voluntary use of PLAs on government projects, but strongly opposes any government mandate for contractors’ use of PLAs.  AGC strongly believes that the choice of whether to adopt a collective bargaining agreement should be left to the contractor-employers and their employees.  Such a choice should not be imposed as a condition to competing for, or performing on, a publicly funded project.
