Press Release: Speak Out for Somerville Jobs at BOA Public Hearing on MaxPac

This is a Legislative Matters Committee Meeting of the whole.

Speak Out for Somerville Jobs at BOA Public Hearing on MaxPac

More than 50 Somerville residents signed a petition requesting a hearing by the Board of Alderman on union jobs and local hiring.

The hearing will be at 6:00 PM on February 17.

The MaxPac developers are still refusing to live up to the commitment they made to the City of Somerville to sign a project labor agreement (PLA).

A PLA is the best way to make sure that Somerville residents are hired to do the work and that it is done safely and fairly.

Somerville can't afford to lose this opportunity to employ local trades people who desperately need jobs in our community. Make your voice heard and show your support for 100% union labor and an agreement to hire Somerville residents!
