  2. Show up July 8th at 9am at the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors meeting and speak out against any proposed PLAs. The meeting will be taking place at: Joseph Centeno Betteravia Government Administration Building, Board Hearing Room 511 East Lakeside Parkway, Santa Maria.

Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at 5:00pm, 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. 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.

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.

Meeting Details

When: Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at 5:00pm

Where: Oxnard School District  (1051 South A Street, Oxnard, California 93030)
