Remember that luncheon for SB5-supporting legislators that I mentioned this afternoon?
It turns out Bryan Williams, the former state rep and current anti-union lobbyist who organized it just just got appointed to the State Board of Education.
Williams has been working as a lobbyist for the Associated Builders and Contractors. The organization, which represents non-union construction firms, opposed project labor agreements [PLAs] such as the ones used on some of Akron’s new school buildings. PLAs require contractors to pay prevailing union wages and benefits.
The Ohio School Facilities Commission, which oversees the state school construction program that shares costs with local districts, announced in February that it will no longer fund PLA projects.
That was quick.
Troughs and snouts?
