Urgent Call to Action: Support Pro-Project Labor Agreement Legislation Today!

Boston Local 534 logo

In light of the unprecedented support for Project Labor Agreements (PLAs) and the influx of infrastructure funding from Washington, we find ourselves at a critical juncture. We must advocate for pro-PLA legislation to be passed and sent to the Governor immediately.

Take action now by clicking the link below and participating in our online letter campaign:
https://actionnetwork.org/letters/protect-project-labor-agreements-2

Project Labor Agreements (PLAs) ensure fair wages, safe working conditions, and quality craftsmanship on construction projects. By supporting PLA legislation, we’re advocating not just for ourselves but for the entire construction workforce in Boston and beyond.

The legislation we support doesn’t mandate the use of PLAs; rather, it establishes clear guidelines for cities and towns to consider when entering such agreements. This flexibility ensures municipalities can leverage PLAs to guarantee the highest quality of projects while providing valuable apprenticeship and career opportunities for our local workforce.

Your participation in our online letter campaign is crucial in demonstrating our collective support for pro-PLA legislation.

Let’s make our voices heard and ensure that our industry and our livelihoods are protected.
