Building Trades Council Declares "Discriminatory PLAs or Bust!"
Eddie Sprecco, CEO
The San Diego Building Trades Council is at it again with their "my way or the highway" take on public policy. This small band of sub-trades has falsely claimed to represent the construction workforce of San Diego for years, while burning project after project to the ground for not implementing a discriminatory Project Labor Agreement.
Their latest scam is trying to get the City Council to do their dirty work and place an item on November's ballot to repeal Proposition A (2012) - a measure that was qualified and passed by the voters of San Diego. How do I know the Building Trades Council is fighting to eliminate the Peoples Intent and put in Discriminatory PLAs? Well, it was their very FIRST proposed amendment to the Fair and Open Competition ordinance!!
