Prop G, the Fair and Open Competition Ordinance, guarantees that all qualified contractors and workers, both Union and Non-Union, have the opportunity to compete for public construction projects in Chula Vista.
Prop G will stimulate a quality Bayfront project, the completion of a four-year university, and state and federal projects in Chula Vista. Prop G will also benefit local Veterans by providing local job opportunities.
Prop G will save taxpayers money! A study by the State of California showed that fair and open competition can save taxpayers up to 20% on public projects. This savings then can go to essential services like Fire and Police or help lower your taxes.
Prop G will create more local jobs. Over 80% of our qualified local construction workers are not members of a Union and could lose out on the ability to compete for jobs on our City’s public construction projects without Prop G. In addition, returning Veterans need jobs and opportunities, and Prop G protects their right to work on public construction projects without being forced to join a union.
The Union-Trib also endorsed Prop G over the weekend…
