Protecting Your Rights and Good Jobs

Key Issues to Ask Federal, State, and Local Candidates About

 Prevailing Wage

Construction workers' wages and benefits depend on prevailing wage laws. Prevailing wage laws - state and federal - ensure public construction does not undermine local wages and standards. 

Project Labor Agreements (PLA)

PLAs are agreements between project owners and unions that set the rules for a construction project. PLAs ensure fair wages, benefits, and working conditions, promote local hiring and safety standards.
