A Bad Bill Goes Down!

HB 1548, which would have outlawed project labor agreements, has died in Senate committee! Congratulations to the building trades unions that turned out in large numbers to oppose this bill. We were proud to stand with you for this important tool for local government to improve working conditions. Mike Cunningham of the TX Building Trades, Rick Levy of the AFLCIO, and Michael Murphy, a member of the IBEW and local labor attorney, provided great testimony last week convincing senators not to pass the bill.
