In the past two years only nine percent of work hours on City of Oakland-funded construction projects went to African-Americans

At the same time, some elected officials are moving ahead on a Project Labor Agreement with Buildings Trades unions that would ensure that almost no Black workers or contractors are hired on future city-funded projects.

Plans for the agreement are being discussed without considering the impact on Black contractors and workers though the city has not completed its long-awaited disparity study that will examine discrimination in city contracts that impacts minorities and women.

The next Post Salonwill discuss the need for a city equity-based jobs policy and related issues.
