Wsdot Agc Agreement

AGCW notes that the NRL has decided that unions and construction project owners cannot enter into employment contracts requiring the contractor and subcontractors recruited by the owner to sign such “project work contracts.” Instead, the AEPs will be initiated and negotiated privately by the contractor recruited for the project and by the union. A union that entered into such a mandatory agreement with a project owner did unfair work. AGC offers employment contracts and contracts negotiated between AGC and the five core trades. Current collective agreements and salary/fringe summaries are available here. The following updated agreement will enter into force on 16 June 2020. The GATW complaint concludes that the requirement for contractors to comply with the CWA negotiated by the unions and WSDOT is contrary to the National Labor Relations Act, as this occurred without the input of the contractors who will actually employ the workers on the project. In other words, the unions and the WSDOT have dictated binding conditions for a private employment contract between the contractors and their employees, who have absolutely no say in the negotiations. Not only is WSDOT not an employer of a worker in the project, but the unions with which the CWA was negotiated do not represent any of the workers. And according to the complaint, some of the 17 unions that negotiated the CWA will not even play a role in the project. But workers will be forced to pay these unions to work. In Washington State, there are many training opportunities.

Andrew Ledbetter Director, Labour Relations aledbetter@agcwa.comTel. 206.812.4865 In the complaint filed with the Regional 19 National Labor Relations Board in Seattle, AGCW argues that the Community Workforce Agreement (CWA) negotiated between the unions and the State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) for the SR-520 Montlake to Lake Washington Interchange and Bridge Replacement Project, violate federal law because the terms of the CWA were negotiated exclusively between WSDOT and the 17 unions, without the contractors or subcontractors who will actually work on this $455 million project participating. While Washington is one of a handful of states with an executive that encourages the use of PLA (about three-quarters of workers on publicly funded projects in Washington are unions), and the city of Seattle has passed its own law, which imposes plenumeral agreements, a growing number of states have banned public works project agreements in recognition of their costly and discriminatory nature. CWAs and PLAs for public projects have long been criticized for being anti-competitive, increasing costs and discriminating against small independent entrepreneurs of trade unions, particularly women and minority businesses. The GATW says that the CWA is probably one of the reasons why the three bidders exceeded WSDOT`s estimated cost range. Given that our state will invest billions of dollars in significant transportation improvements over the next 16 years, the construction program business plan (pdf 2 mb) must enable projects to be effectively executed in a changing construction landscape.
