PLAs are also fair. Contrary to blatant misrepresentations, they are open to all. All contractors, union and non-union, are free to bid and win PLA contracts, and all workers, union or non-union, by law, must be accepted into the referral systems of building trades unions, provided they are qualified. On top of all this, PLAs promote local hiring and offer valuable careers to workers in local communities. But the real test is whether project labor agreements benefit project owners. On this issue, the evidence speaks for itself.
