WASHINGTON, February 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today, President Biden signed an Executive Order requiring the use of Project Work Agreements (PLAs) on the above federal construction projects $35 million. David LongPresident and CEO of the National Electrical Contractors Association, issued the following statement following the order:
I want to thank President Biden for this Executive Order requiring Project Labor Agreements (PLAs) on the above Federal construction projects $35 million. This order prioritizes the safety, value, quality and on-time delivery of our federal projects, built with a highly skilled and trained workforce – all areas in which NECA contractors exceed their competitors.
Many private homeowners across America use PLAs, and federal agencies have seen the value these agreements bring, bringing success to construction projects across the United States. This ensures that US taxpayer dollars go toward federal construction projects that will be completed at the highest level.
With the signing of the bipartisan Infrastructure Act, nothing is more important than directly impacting and fixing our country’s infrastructure for the safety and well-being of our citizens and communities.
