    • Stop SunCal!
      SunCal’s Oak Knoll Project
      • Includes nearly a thousand homes that will not be built with union labor and will not provide family-sustaining wages for construction workers.
      • Doesn’t provide joint labor-management apprenticeships for local workers.
      • Provides for no on-site affordable housing.
      • Adds 11,000 new car trips daily, increasing traffic congestion.
      • Will clear-cut a forest of native oak trees.
      • Allows uncontrolled construction emissions to pollute neighborhood air quality.

      SunCal, a large out-of-town developer, is proposing an exclusive community of luxury homes on 188 acres of the Oak Knoll Naval Hospital site in the Oakland Hills. This is the second largest development ever proposed in Oakland and it needs to provide a benefit to the community we’ve created.

      SunCal Planning Commission Hearing 10-18-17

      Stop SunCal!Oakland's Planning Commission will take public comment and make recommendations to the City Council on SunCal's Oak Knoll project on Oct. 18th. Please join us at 5:30pm in front of Oakland's City Hall. RSVP here! 

      EBRRD together with the Building Trades and Labor Council of Alameda remain opposed to Oak Knoll because SunCal is refusing to provide housing affordable to Oakland residents, labor standards on the homes that will be constructed, and is now saying NO to a development agreement too. Oct. 18th is about showing unity for labor standards on new construction in Oakland, supporting inclusive developments that maintain Oakland's diversity, and standing up for middle class jobs for apprentices, ex-offenders, and others aspiring to work locally in construction. 

      Our goal is to show up with 100 strong. Please join us.

      Prevailing Wage

      Indiana GOP Leader Admits Repealing Prevailing Wage 'Hasn't Saved a Penny'

      A video has surfaced from a forum April 24 in Milwaukee, WI where Republican Indiana House Assistant Majority Leader Ed Soliday angrily reveals that similar legislation passed in Indiana which went into effect in 2015 "hasn't saved a penny."

      "We got rid of prevailing wage and so far it hasn't saved a penny," Soliday says during the question and answer session last week hosted by the Wisconsin Transportation Development Association in Milwaukee. "Probably the people most upset with us repealing [prevailing] wage were the locals. Because the locals, quite frankly, like to pay local contractors and they like local contractors to go to the dentist in their own town."

      In the video obtained by One Wisconsin Now, Republican Soliday also mocks the outrageous claims about savings made by right-wing organizations like Americans for Prosperity. In Indiana, anti-worker groups claimed prevailing wage repeal would save taxpayers 22 percent on construction costs.

      "The exaggerations in those hearings that we were going save 22 percent," Soliday says. "Well, total labor costs right now in road construction is about 22 percent, and I haven't noticed anyone who's going to work for free. [They claim] there's some magic state out there that's going to send all these workers into work for $10 an hour and it's just not going to happen. There's not 22 percent savings out there when the total cost of labor is 22 percent. It's rhetoric."

      Soliday adds, "So far, I haven't seen a dime of savings out of it."
