Community Benefit Agreement and Project Labor Agreement
Community Benefit Agreement
The Governing Board of the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District adopted Resolution No. 20-006 at its regular meeting held on January 21, 2020. That resolution resolved that "the Board hereby directs staff to negotiate the terms of a Project Labor Agreement consistent with Public Contract Code Section 2500 and Section 3 (j) of Board Resolution No. 13-004.” In accordance with that Resolution, the District has negotiated an amendment to the current Agreement relating to Proposition V construction projects, subject to Governing Board approval. The Amendment to the Agreement does the following: (1) changes the name of the Project Labor Agreement to the “Community Benefit Agreement”; (2) amends the Project List to add two additional construction projects to be covered by the Agreement; and (2) extends the term of the Agreement until completion of the two additional construction projects.

Project Labor Agreement
A Project Labor Agreement (PLA) is a legally binding contract between the Grossmont- Cuyamaca Community College District (GCCCD) and contractors that are signatory, and within agreement, to the PLA. It establishes a standard for a contractor’s relationship with his/her workers by setting basic standards for hiring, dispute resolution, payment of fringe benefits, and utilization of apprentices, amongst other things. These basic standards are outlined within the PLA.
 
The PLA is designed to ensure a sufficient supply of skilled craft workers and eliminate work disruptions for projects covered under Proposition V. The Agreement contains sections describing the process for hiring of journeyman workers and apprentices, for resolving disputes, and for promoting local hiring goals of skilled craftspeople and apprentices living within the footprint of GCCCD as well as San Diego County.

Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s)
The KPI’s will be divided into Four (4) key sections. They are:
• Local Hire
• Project Cost Impacts
• Project Schedule Impacts
• Program Cost Impacts
 
Each section will have a baseline against which to measure. This will be based on previous projects completed under Prop. R and to date on Prop. V. Each section will provide information on how the baseline was created and what will be measured. The results will be transmitted to the District in the form of various reports.
