NEEPAWA, Man. — Manitoba is one of the few remaining jurisdictions in which project labour agreements (PLA) are used, but that might be changing. On November 3, the provincial government opened consultations on their current procurements practices, with a goal of reducing or eliminating the use of PLAs on major government projects.
PLAs are used on large-scale projects and set the wage rates and benefits that will apply to all employees. They replace any existing collective bargaining agreements and usually require that all workers hired pay union dues during their work on the project, even if they aren’t a union member. Recently in Manitoba, PLAs were used on Bipole III and the Red River Floodway expansion.
