BUILDERS GROUP FILES SUIT TO OVERTURN NCAA HQ AGREEMENT
Published April 7, 1998
The Association of Builders and Contractors of IN (ABCI) filed a lawsuit "to overturn the agreement that the state signed to build the new NCAA headquarters downtown," according to Stuart Hirsch of the INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS. The suit "alleges that project labor agreements [PLAs] special pacts that require all contractors on the contract to pay union wages and benefits are illegal." ABCI Exec Dir J.R. Gaylor: "PLAs only serve to eliminate competition from the marketplace. By eliminating competition, PLAs increase costs of construction." An agreement for the new NCAA HQ, scheduled to open next summer, and for the Hall of Champions museum, scheduled for 2000, was signed in February. ABCI attorney S. Douglas Trolson said the group is seeking an injunction, but "they don't want to stop the project." They "want future contracts to be open to all competitors." Trolson: "We are not asking them to go back and reopen any contracts" (Stuart Hirsch, INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS, 4/7).
