    Default U.S. Agencies Cleared to Require Union Workers on Job Sites

    U.S. Agencies Cleared to Require Union Workers on Job Sites

    By Holly Rosenkrantz

    U.S. agencies may require contractors on public construction projects to negotiate with labor unions under a rule issued today by the Obama administration.

    The rule that takes effect next month lets the government make so-called project labor agreements a requirement for contractors on U.S.-financed construction jobs that exceed $25 million.

    Under the order, unions have the ability to bargain for wages, hours and work-rules in exchange for agreeing not to call a strike. Supporters of project-labor agreements say it promotes efficiency on government purchases. Opponents say the arrangements discriminate against the more than 85 percent of construction workers who arenít union members.
