How about some free tickets for the men who took the hit on the PLA's [Project Labor Agreements] to make it happen.Forest City Ratner stopped construction of the Beekman Tower (aka 8 Spruce Street) to negotiate a PLA.
Time to have a Trades Night out when the season starts next year. You can go by the Certified Payroll records on file with the CM [Construction Manager] & Project Owner.
C'mon - set it up. Let's see if Ratner appreciates the effort and steps up
I'm not sure if Forest City simply took advantage of an existing general PLA or negotiated one specifically for the arena. But it sure seems that the developer shaved savings on labor costs.
