Cross-posted from Building and Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO

This study, commissioned by the board of the San Diego Unified School District, looked at a Project Stabilization agreement (also known as a PSA or a PLA) between SDUSD and the San Diego Building Trades Council. The agreement covered the modernization of 161 schools, and the construction or refurbishment of 12 others.

Among the study’s findings:

  • There was no increase in the cost of the project to the district.
  • The quality of construction was improved.
  • And, projects were completed faster than prior projects not done under the PSA.
