SAVE THE DATE: Fight For Local Jobs On October 5, 2010

Fight for Jobs

FIGHT FOR LOCAL JOBS IN THE SECOND DISTRICT

New Meeting Date: October 5, 2010

The Board of Supervisors will vote on a proposal to establish a Local Worker Hiring Policy for the $145 million Martin Luther King, Jr. Multi-Service Ambulatory Care Center. With over $400 million of construction activity on the new Martin Luther King, Jr. Hospital and surrounding buildings, this is our first opportunity to promote local hiring.

The proposed policy will ensure that at least 30% of total construction hours worked under a Project Labor Agreement with the building trade unions are performed by local residents who live in high unemployment ZIP codes (150% of the County average), and that a substantial portion of these are set aside for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Come and let your voice be heard in support of local hiring.
