Too soon to vote on train station PLA

By From page A8 | July 20, 2014

It would be premature on the part of the Fairfield City Council to take a final vote Tuesday on a project labor agreement associated with its planned train station project.

The terms of that agreement have not generally been made public so the council would be giving the impression they have something to hide from the public.

The Daily Republic in an editorial published last week made suggestions that made a lot of sense in terms of using local labor. The council should review that and consider it as well.

Council members who are candidates should avoid the appearance of “payback” for union support. Council members serve the public and not the unions.

A strong case can be made that project labor agreements are unfair to local labor, and that they tend to be more costly as well.
