Lucas County 1996, 2009 PLAs nearly identical


I've received the copy of the 1996 approved Project Labor Agreement resolution passed by the Lucas County Commissioners as well as the 1997 resolution that rescinded the policy.

The first two pages are the resolution which repealed the policy and the remaining pages are the original policy:

1996 Lucas County Project Labor Agreement Policy and 1997 PLA Rescision Interestingly, the 2009 resolution has many clauses that are identical to the 1996 policy that was repealed. You can compare the two documents yourself to see that many of the itemized provisions of the two policies are word-for-word. 2009 Lucas County PLA reso So again, if this was a bad idea that had to be repealed in 1997, why is it a good idea now?????

This is a "Duh" moment...PLA is sponsored by Young Ben. Young Ben if the nephew of Sandy Isenberg. Commish Isenberg was involved in the first failed attempt to institute PLAs. Young Ben is just trying to "right the wrong" done to his family by the voiding of the PLA in 1996-97.

Toledo/Lucas County needs a new law...only one politician PER FAMILY EVER!!!!

I don't know, 2Bn11FA - Sandy led the effort to rescind the first one, even though it was only after all the outrage....

But I like the TOBAL (there oughtta be a law) ....
