This week the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to develop a plan for a Countywide Construction Careers and Economic Development Initiative, and a Project Labor Agreement for all County capital and construction projects and economic and housing development projects on County-owned property.

The Board also directed County staff to “engage representatives of the various building trades on the terms for a possible Project Labor Agreement for major capital projects” including the Consolidated Correctional Treatment Facility, Harbor-UCLA Medical Center Master Plan Project, King-Drew Reuse Project (Martin Luther King, Jr. Medical Campus) and the Mira Loma Detention Center.

Representatives for SMART Local 105 joined with the Los Angeles/Orange Counties Building & Construction Trades Council and the LA County Labor Federation, among others, to support these initiatives.

County Staff will report back to the Board of Supervisors in May for final recommendations and the terms of the Countywide PLA. You can see pictures from the vote by visiting LOCAL105/PHOTOS
