Biden Administration Finalized Rule Governing Project Labor Agreements on Federal Construction Projects

Dec 19, 2023
The Biden Administration promulgated a final rule requiring the use of Project Labor Agreements (PLAs) on federal construction projects above $35 million. David Long, Chief Executive Officer of the National Electrical Contractors Association, made the following statement following the Order:

We appreciate the Administration for finalizing this rule, which implements Executive Order 14063 requiring project labor agreements (PLAs) for most large-scale federal construction projects. This order prioritizes safety, value, quality, and on-time delivery of our federal projects, built with a highly skilled and trained workforce—all areas in which NECA contractors exceed their competitors.

Many private owners across America utilize PLAs, and federal agencies have seen the value that these agreements provide, bringing success to construction projects across the U.S. This ensures American tax dollars are going toward federal construction projects that will be completed at the highest standard.

As the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the CHIPS and Science Act, and the Inflation Reduction Act continue to be implemented, nothing is more important than directly impacting and repairing our nation's infrastructure for the safety and well-being of our citizens and our communities.
