Labor unions have taken control of the Brentwood City Council. They have convinced the City Council that using only 30 percent of the workforce that is union and excluding 70 percent of the non-union workforce in Contra Costa County (www.unionstats.com) for the construction of the $65 million Civic Center Project under a Project Labor Agreement is a good idea.
Brentwood citizens and taxpayers, this is going to cost you an extra 10 to 20 percent because this union monopoly will result in decreased competition in bidding. Contact the City Council today and tell it to build this project under fair and open competition.
Brian E. Johnson, Brentwood
