PLAs are just schemes to box out non-union competition

In an opinion piece appearing in the CTMirror on March 18, authors John Harrity of the CT Roundtable on Climate and Jobs and Samantha Dynowski of the Sierra Club of CT argue in favor of a proposal, SB 999, which would ensure government mandated Project Labor Agreements (PLA) be used on renewable energy construction projects. They argue the use of PLAs would usher in a “just” transition to a green economy. Nothing is further from the truth.
