Construction industry trade groups are pushing back on President Biden’s policy to require collective bargaining agreements between contractors and workers for federal construction projects.
Biden signed an executive order earlier this month to mandate project labor agreements (PLA) for federal construction contracts exceeding $35 million in an effort to improve working conditions and wages for construction workers and increase the quality of federal projects. The order, which drew praise from some construction unions, would impact nearly 200,000 workers.
