As we reported yesterday, the San Diego Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 to draft a ballot initiative for voters to consider that would ban wasteful and discriminatory project labor agreements on county construction. This move comes in response to Big Labor’s increasingly blatant efforts to monopolize local work in San Diego County.
We noted yesterday that this vote was covered in the North County Times (”County Moves to Restrict Union Labor Requirement“, Feb 9), the San Diego County News (”Ensuring Fair and Open Competition For County Contracts“, Feb 9) and SignonSanDiego.com (”County Considering Ban on Labor Deals, Public Works Projects Would not Require Hiring Through Union Halls“, Feb 9).
The vote was also covered by KUSI San Diego. The KUSI video is available through their website. This video is worth watching. It is clear that the reporters from KUSI understand the issue and the impact of PLAs on their community.
