In recent San Gabriel legal news, the Upper San Gabriel Valley Municipal Water District has pledged to use union labor on its future construction projects. The March 2010 decision was made in anticipation of projects including a $210 million water recycling plant and several pipeline expansion efforts. Specifically, the Water District’s board director stated that they plan to implement project labor agreements (PLA’s) on public construction works. The director stated that because of a lack of inspectors, state and federal laws are often not enforced. Thus, the board has implemented PLA’s in order to monitor prevailing wage and labor standards for the projects.
