Cleveland Building Trades Lock Project Labor Agreement for Dispatch Center Work


submit to reddit  

The Parma City Council has voted in favor of a Project Labor Agreement (PLA) with the Cleveland Building and Construction Trades Council (CBCTC) for upcoming work on a regional dispatch center.  In total, the council voted on $647,000 of expenditures for the project, which is expected to be completed in August. 

The project had an estimated price tag of $3.5 million, but so far has come in under budget.  The PLA will specifically cover $200,000 of work renovating the building that will house the center.  Upon completion the center will serve the Cleveland suburbs of Parma, Parma Heights, and Brooklyn.

Maura Zurick of the Northeast Ohio Media Group wrote in her live blog of the council meeting, “The agreement also prevents unfair working conditions and specifies project details to ensure the construction is completed on time.

During the meeting, the council also selected Fowler Electricity as the contractor for the center’s electrical needs.  Fowler’s bid of $477,000 was well below the budgeted amoun of $830,000.  The council also voted to use $759,000 of a $972,000 grant from Cuyahoga County to buy recording devices, radio and computer equipment, telephones, and other electronics for the dispatch center.
