AGC Urges Trump Administration to Rescind President Obama's Project Labor Agreement Executive Order
 

On January 25, AGC urged President Trump to rescind President Obama’s project labor agreement (PLA) executive order and replace it with a new order.  AGC asked President Trump to issue a new order that ensures fair and open competition on federal construction contracts by preventing agencies from mandating contractors to sign a PLA as a condition of winning a federal or federally assisted construction contract and from implementing a preference policy for bids with a PLA.  The Obama-era order encourages federal agencies to mandate PLAs on projects valued at $25 million or more.  Until President Trump acts, that executive order remains in effect.

In addition to calling for rescission of the executive order, AGC is also urging Congress to support the Fair and Open Competition Act, which would prohibit federal contracting agencies from mandating that contractors enter into PLAs on direct federal projects.
