The only construction workers permitted on a PLA job site are members of one of the unions listed on the attached PLA Telephone Contact List. There are many other unions representing building and construction workers. Some of these other unions are from Long Island, Westchester and New Jersey, and others are New York City based, but they are not signatory to the PLA and therefore cannot represent any workers on a PLA job. (It also does not matter whether any of these other unions have apprenticeship programs of their own.)
Additionally, a company that is signatory to one of these "other" unions CAN work on our PLA jobs, but the firm MUST get ALL of its workers (subject to the eighth worker provision, of course) for the trade directly from the appropriate union shown on the PLA Telephone Contact List by directly contacting and sending the union the Affidavit of PLA participation. The firm must also send a copy of that original affidavit with each weekly or monthly supplemental benefit check payment that is sent to the union.
Again, ONLY workers who are members of one of the unions listed on the attached PLA Telephone Contact List may perform construction work on SCA PLA sites.
