Project Labor Agreements

Anti-competitive project labor agreements (PLAs) prevent open, fair, and competitive bidding on public works projects. PLAs drive up the cost of construction by reducing competition and effectively excluding merit shop contractors and their employees from building projects paid for by their own tax dollars. IEC is engaged in stopping the proliferation of these agreements, as well as actively working to curtail the use of PLAs through legislation.
