[…] an April 14 Wall Street Journal editorial blasted President Obama`s pro-project labor agreement (PLA) Executive Order 13502 of February 6, 2009, which […] P.A. hurts local workers. Supporters claim that THE PTAs ensure the use of local labour, but the truth is that the AEPs fail in creating local jobs. Pla supporters do not mention the concept of local workers, which excludes skilled local workers from trade unions, women, minorities and former buildings. This rhetoric is particularly misleading, as only 12.6 percent of U.S. construction workers belong to a union. In hardware stores where demand for union work exceeds supply, union workers outside the local territory will be preferred in PLA projects rather than qualified non-unionized local workers. These union workers are called travellers or boomers, and they deprive non-unionized skilled local craftsmen of jobs. There is some anecdotal evidence to suggest that LSAs do not perform better on local rents. Construction Employers of America (CEA) issued a statement of support for proposed laboratory agreements in 2017, saying: “PLAes are valuable tools for the construction industry because they can be used to create the conditions for a superior construction project. … Improving U.S.

infrastructure requires the highest quality and the safest working products. In order to ensure this high-quality construction and construction safety and to promote learning and training, Davis-Bacon`s salaries, as well as project work contracts, should be applied to these projects.

A number of women and minority entrepreneurial groups oppose project contracts[62] and claim that PPPs have a disproportionate impact on small businesses, particularly those owned by women and minorities. These groups argue that EPAs are anti-market and discriminatory. [100] [101] In particular, groups, including the National Association of Women Business Owners, voted against the PLA and, in 1998, a hearing was held in the House of Representatives on the issue of minority opposition to government-mandated PLA. [102] The National Black Chamber of Commerce opposes the use of LTOs because of the small number of black trade unionists in the construction industry. According to the NBCC, the introduction of PLA discriminates against black-traffic workers, who are generally not unionized, and also prevents contractors from employing casual workers. [103] [104] According to the Pan-Asian American Chamber of Commerce in the United States, most of its members are small businesses that are unduly affected by THE PLA, in part because of rising costs and lower benefits for workers.

[1] Before workers are hired for the project, construction unions have the right to negotiate, determine wage rates and benefits for all workers working on the project concerned, and approve the provisions of the agreement.
