The PLA is item 4 on the Board's agenda  and we are encouraging all area contractors and taxpayer advocates to attend and speak up for fair and open competition. 

The meeting will be held at the County Administration Building Board Hearing Room, 4th floor, 105 East Anapamu St, Santa Barbara, CA 93101. Our item will be discussed around 1pm.

We need you to do two things to help fight this PLA:

  2. Contact the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors and let them know why you stand opposed to PLAs.

Wednesday, October 1st at 7:00pm, the Oxnard School District Board of Trustees will begin discussing whether or not to place a Project Labor Agreement on their $90 million "Measure R" bond funds. CFEC's Eric Christen will be in attendance and will be giving a presentation on the negative effects of PLAs and we need individuals there to show the large amount of support that fair and open competition has in the region and to highlight why PLAs will be detrimental to the school district, as it was for the Oxnard Union High School District. View the agenda here (item E.1).
 
There is a path to defeating this PLA, but the cornerstone of the plan is the attendance of local contractors and supporters of our side at every meeting where the PLA is being discussed. The unions will show up. Which means not only do we need you, but we need you to tell all of your industry friends, co-workers, and any other individuals who support fair and open competition to be at this meeting as well.
 
Contact the Board of Trustees today to let them know you stand opposed to a PLA
