Will this project include requirements to hire local people?

A:

This project is primarily funded with federal transportation funds. At the time this project received funding, the federal government did not allow local hiring preferences.  
However, the City’s Bureau of Contract Administration and City Attorney’s office were key in securing a Project Labor Agreement (PLA) for the project, to ensure labor union participation in creating the Sixth Street Viaduct.

The Sixth Street Viaduct team held a public briefing at Puente Learning Center in Boyle Heights on October 6, 2014, which presented the PLA, opportunities for apprenticeship training at Los Angeles Trade Technical College, and goals to include local businesses and local labor participation.

Although there is no official local hiring requirement for this project, Mayor Garcetti, Councilman Huizar, Bureau of Engineering and the Sixth Street Viaduct Construction Manager/General Contractor Skanska Stacy and Witbeck (SSW) are committed to seeking every opportunity to include local participation in this project.
