Seattle signs community-workforce deal with labor unions
By: Daniel Beekman

Seattle has entered into a community-workforce agreement with almost 20 labor unions, Mayor Ed Murray announced in a news release Monday.

The agreement will serve as a “job-site constitution” on certain city construction and public-works projects, “establishing work-site conditions, project execution and protocol to resolve labor disputes,” the mayor said.

The agreement includes the requirements of a “priority hire” ordinance that the City Council passed in January.

That ordinance requires that a percentage of the labor hours on city projects worth $5 million or more be performed by workers from economically distressed neighborhoods.
