AZAGC and Operating Engineers Reach Agreement

In January, the Arizona Chapter Associated General Contractors signed an 18 month agreement with the International Union of Operating Engineers, local 428.  The agreement includes provisions making it easier for contractors to invoke the favored nations clause of the contract, acknowledment of the disparity in wage rates that exist in the CBA versus the Davis-Bacon rates and an acceptable wage rate for the current economic times.  More importantly and for the first time in a long time, the operators have managed to get the entire industry under one agreement.  This is a major accomplishment for contractors signatory to the operators.
