Rio Hondo College
L Tower Seismic and Code Upgrades Project
TSG is currently providing Project Labor Agreement (PLA) Administration and Labor Compliance services to Rio Hondo College for its L Tower Seismic and Code Upgrades Project. In this role, TSG is responsible for enforcing the rules established in the PLA, including the use of local workers. We also provide full Labor Compliance services, which include advising contractors of their responsibilities, monitoring and enforcement using Certified Payroll Records (CPR), and monthly reporting to the client.
$245 million Facilities Bond Construction & Modernization
TSG served as the lead Project Labor Agreement (PLA) and Contract Compliance Program Administrator for this $245 million construction bond program upon its inception in 2005. TSG helped Rio Hondo College negotiate the original PLA and assisted with its re-negotiation in June 2009. Although a major union did not sign the new PLA, TSG managed the remaining four years of the construction program without disruption on any project.
TSG also developed a task-specific outreach program for Rio Hondo, establishing connection with the community to meet local hire goals and to educate the community on Rio Hondo College’s local hire efforts. We were responsible for coordinating with unions, contractors, and apprenticeship programs to increase and monitor the number of local workers hired. In addition, we were solely responsible for Contract Compliance monitoring and enforcement, including reviewing Certified Payroll Reports (CPRs), conducting site interviews, and recommending withholdings and penalties to Rio Hondo in accordance with the California Labor Code.
