It will be put to the union`s vote in the coming days. The five-year contracts include approximately 20,000 employees in CWA District 3, which includes Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

A wide range of supporters of the work and community, and the Port Authority itself, have declared this project a success, because it promotes collaborative, buy-in approaches to several parties, and in fact has led to a considerable number of new workers in quality careers. The policy requires that each construction of subsidized projects be covered by a master-project contract negotiated between the rating agency and the Construction and Construction Trade Council. Among the conditions laid down by the PLA is the requirement to work 30% of all working hours as part of the agreement between residents of low-income neighbourhoods. 10% of the total working time is reserved for vulnerable and hard-to-employ workers.
On October 23, 1992, while the Boston Harbor case was still on trial, President George H.W. Bush signed Executive Order 12818 prohibiting federal authorities from carrying out union work exclusively for construction projects.  Bush`s ordinance prohibiting the use of LTCs in federal construction projects.  The Clinton administration rescinded that order when President Bill Clinton issued Executive Order 12836 in February 1993, shortly after taking office.  This contract allowed federal authorities to finance construction projects for which contractors needed a PLA.  A month later, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously upheld the implementation of public projects agreements in the Boston Harbor Cleanup case.  The Supreme Court held that if the government was in the role of a regulatory authority, it was not in a position to require the use of PLA in accordant to the principles of pre-emption of labour law, but it could choose to do so as a market player without being anticipated by the National Labor Relations Act.  The Court did not consider whether state-imposed APAs were legal under the federal or federal competition laws.
