PLA's DOA in Tennessee

Project Labor Agreements (PLAs), kickbacks to Big Labor unions that drive up the cost of construction projects by nearly 25% have been banned in Tennessee thanks to legislation signed into law by Gov. Bill Haslam. Tennessee is the fourth state to ban PLA’s in 2011, joining another four that had previously banned PLA’s on projects funded by the taxpayers.

In an age of belt-tightening, there is no reason to pay inflated dollars for construction contracts all to please Big Labor.
