Correction: At the Atlantic Yards site (and others), a Project Labor Agreement (PLA) would have averted a strike

Atlantic Yards Report

I wrote July 1 that a last-minute pact averted a citywide strike of construction workers, citing news reports that indicated a strike could have stopped work at the Atlantic Yards site.

Not so. The arena construction, and the rest of the work, is governed by a Project Labor Agreement (PLA), which, as Gary LaBarbera, president of the Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York (BCTC) reminded members, includes a no strike/no-lock out clause.

Here's a list of such projects.

As one commenter on the Local157 blog pointed out, informational picketing would be permitted.
