PLAs Are Not Discriminatory, Plant Vogtle gets its Construction License from Nuke Commission

 

Project Labor Agreements are said to limit competition and by extension do not allow non-union contractors to bid on them. The Federal Transit Administration of the Department of Transportation says otherwise and unions in construction agree. Also BCTD President Mark Ayers is receiving the Instituto Laboral de la Raza's Labor Leader of the Year Award and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission gives Plant Vogtle is Construction and Operating License, paving the way for thousands of jobs.
