FAIRFIELD — Solano College officials will hear the pros and cons Wednesday of using a project labor agreement for future bond construction.
The Solano Community College District’s Board of Trustees will once again hear about the topic that brought emotional responses from both sides when it was discussed in February. They meet at 6:30 p.m. in the Administration Building at the Fairfield campus at 4000 Suisun Valley Road.
Solano trustees are in the beginning stages of planning how to spend $348 million of Measure Q money. Part of that process is explaining the options of how labor is hired for those projects.
Opponents of the agreements have previously said the agreements make it so nonunion companies are at a disadvantage during the bidding process. Those in favor pointed to the use of local workers and the open bidding process for union and nonunion groups.
The item is only an informational report and no vote is expected.
