What are PROJECT LABOR AGREEMENTS
and WHY DO THEY MATTER?
When public taxpayer dollars go to a public construction project, we expect accountability. Wisconsin residents count on experienced contractors and highly-skilled workers from the community to safely complete construction projects on-time and on-budget, and done the right way the first time.
It's the Wisconsin Way.
PLAs safeguard taxpayers, help keep our workers safe, often ensure support for job training and apprenticeship programs, and even contain hiring preferences for groups like veterans and local workers to make sure that Wisconsin families have jobs – not cut-rate companies and unskilled labor from out-of-state.
Project Labor Agreements are used regularly by big companies in the private sector on major projects because these businesses know how to keep costs down. Shouldn’t government do the same thing? Please click on the link below to learn more:
