TITLE
Recommendation to request City Attorney to draft a resolution creating a new policy for the City to partner with the Los Angeles and Orange County Building Trades Councils to create a City Project Labor Agreement for applicable City public improvement projects that increase employment opportunities for Long Beach residents and businesses.
 
DISCUSSION
Each year the City allocates resources to construct or improve public facilities
and infrastructure. These projects create the need for skilled labor that can
adequately meet City specifications and be completed within appropriate
construction schedules. Likewise the City is interested in creating new
opportunities for Long Beach residents to gain employment in good paying jobs
within the construction industry, especially jobs created as a result of City
projects.
 
To meet these objectives, we are interested in the City developing a partnership
with our local Los Angeles and Orange County Building Trades Council to design
an agreement that utilizes local skilled and certified labor, and provides greater
opportunities for Long Beach residents. There are many elements to consider in
developing such an appropriate agreement that meets the interests of the City of
Long Beach. Major themes that should be included are a jobs initiatives that
supports local apprenticeship programs, local hiring of Long Beach residents and
opportunities for small Long Beach emerging businesses.
