Over the next decade, $2 Trillion in new Infrastructure funding is coming into our communities. New federal guidance means that states and local communities will now be allowed to attach enforceable policies to these federally-funded projects to require good paying jobs, promote equity hiring, sustainable contracting and protect worker rights to organize. Provisions such as local and community hiring, community benefits agreements and project labor agreements that were barred from some federal funding are now allowable. These community job quality policies can now be attached at the city, state, department or project level through enabling legislation — opening up many new organizing opportunities for worker and community power building.
