PROJECT LABOR AGREEMENT (PLA) MANDATES ARE BAD FOR THE WEST JEFFERSON HILLS SCHOOL DISTRICT.
How PLAs Increase Costs
- PLA Mandates INCREASE Project Costs – studies show these mandates increase school construction costs between 12 percent and 18 percent compared to similar non-PLA school projects. Can the WJHSD afford to pay roughly 15 percent more for less, or waste money best spent funding other critical programs for our children?
- PLA Mandates Unfairly REDUCE Competition – these mandates cater to special interests and can cut out local small businesses from projects. They do not consider merit when awarding contracts.
Why did West Jefferson Hills School District officials turn their backs on taxpayers, local businesses and their employees? Ask them today!
