West Basin Municipal Water District (WBMWD)
PLA Program Management/Labor Compliance Monitoring
TSG is serving as Project Labor Agreement (PLA) Coordinator on a program that includes 4 projects totaling $50 million in construction value, and providing Labor Compliance monitoring on several other projects. Prior to beginning, we helped the District develop both a PLA Compliance Plan and a Labor Compliance Program (LCP). This included preparing an LCP Manual and Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) application for their Proposition 84-funded projects. We also conducted full-day immersive training on LC and PLA practices at the West Basin offices.
Our efforts are geared towards reaching the District’s specific PLA goals, resolving PLA and LCP issues without disruption to the program, and helping the District navigate the Prop-84 funding process. TSG will conduct training sessions for District staff on LCP administration, review organizational structure and roles to ensure successful program implementation, train District staff on online CPR system procedures, and help educate contractors at pre-job and PLA Kick-Off meetings about key requirements and document submittal procedures. TSG will ensure any stakeholder disputes are resolved informally by creating a partnership between Labor Unions and contractors. We will also provide monthly progress reports to keep the District up to date on the program’s success.
