Home > About Us > Project Labor Agreement & Construction Careers Policy > Overview
Metro adopted the Construction Careers Policy (CCP) in conjunction with the Project Labor Agreement (PLA) to encourage construction employment and training opportunities to those who reside in economically disadvantaged areas on Metro construction projects. The agreement applies to certain local (non-federally) funded and federally funded construction projects with a life of project value greater than $2.5 million.
Metro's PLA is unique in that Metro is the first transit agency in the nation to adopt such an agreement with national targeted hiring goals for federally funded projects with FTA approval. The PLA and CCP were approved by Metro's Board of Directors on January 26, 2012 and negotiated with the Los Angeles/Orange County Building Construction Trades Council (LAOCBCTC) to help facilitate the timely completion of transit projects in LA County.
All contractors working on Metro construction projects covered by the PLA and CCP will be required to comply with certain targeted hiring requirements.
The PLA requires 40% participation of construction workers residing in economically disadvantaged areas, 10% participation of disadvantaged workers, and a 20% participation of apprentices.
