Legislative Updates

SCGMA continues to be engaged in all impactful legislative proceedings and remains focused on promoting and protecting our contractors and our industry. We are pleased to announce Union Contractor Voice, a grassroots platform dedicated to California Union-signatory construction employers. We will use the platform to focus on the most pressing issues impacting the Union construction industry and empower Union contractors, large and small alike, to take action. This new tool will ensure that the unique, collective voice of California’s Union-signatory contractors is heard.

Now contractors have a new and improved way to engage on top legislative issues facing the Union construction industry in the future.

Please take a moment to visit the site and take action regarding our current campaign(s):

  • Action Alert: Union Construction Industry Urged to Oppose Proposed Lead Standards

    • Cal/OSHA Proposed Lead Standards Pose Significant Burden to Contractors & Construction Workers
  • Call to Action – Act Now to Oppose SB 365 (Wiener)

    • We are urging all CA union signatory contractors to use our grassroots advocacy page to send a preformulated email to Governor Newsom and Legislators asking that they oppose SB 365.   The bill would limit the rights of union construction contractors and their employees who collectively bargain wage, hours and working conditions by circumventing the arbitration and grievance procedures within industry collective bargaining agreements (CBAs).
  • COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave Reinstated (SB 114)

    • On February 9th, Governor Newsom signed Senate Bill SB 114 which reinstates up to 80 hours of COVID-19 related Supplemental Paid Sick Leave (SPSL) for all employees working for California employers who employ more than 25 people.
