Does the use of a PLA reduce the number of bidders?

Not necessarily. While some traditionally non-union contractors may choose not to bid for work under a PLA, the experience of on many large-scale projects – including the Boston Harbor Project, the Port of Oakland, and the Southern Nevada Water Authority’s Improvement Project – show that non-union contractors bid and work on projects covered by PLAs. In fact, on the two-phase Nevada project, there were more bidders on the phase conduced under the PLA than on an earlier phase, conducted before the PLA was negotiated.
