Eric Christen, executive director for the Coalition for Fair Employment in Construction, will face off against Lorena Gonzalez, secretary-treasurer of the San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council, in a radio debate on San Diego County’s Proposition A on Thursday, October 14 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time.
Eric Christen will be speaking in support of Proposition A (the position in support of fair and open competition, job creation, and protecting taxpayers) and Lorena Gonzalez will be speaking against Proposition A (the position in support of costly and discriminatory construction union monopolies).
Christen and Gonzalez are intellectual brawlers known for their hard-hitting positions and aggressive debating styles. This debate promises to be quite entertaining as well as educational.
Proposition A, on the November 2 ballot, would prohibit San Diego County from entering into contracts that require construction companies to sign project labor agreements (PLAs) with unions.
The radio debate will be on KPBS: These Days with Maureen Cavanaugh. You can listen on the radio on 89.5 FM or online at http://www.kpbs.org/news/these-days/.
