Another year has ended, and environmental law firms working for trade unions are busier than ever trying to cut competition from you and increase costs of construction.
They’re using the state’s environmental law - the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) - as grounds to object to permits and approval of proposed construction projects.
Once the developer agrees to a Project Labor Agreement or some other deal with unions, the environmental objections are resolved and The Planet Is Saved, again. Praise Gaia.
By the way, this is how the "Green New Deal" you are now reading about in the news will be implemented in California - not with laws, but with extortion.
Law firms hired by the unions deliberately submit documents to governments at the very last minute (to maximize cost, time, and stress for the developer). It’s difficult for the public to track this practice.
Fortunately, there are experts in this business, supported by people like you: Us.
The Coalition for Fair Employment in Construction is constantly tracking union “greenmail” - blackmail using environmental laws. We have identified, extracted, processed, uploaded, and complied with more than 500 examples of such documents submitted on behalf of unions since 2014. And we provide the list to the public. Thanks to our efforts two separate lawsuits are now suing the unions over their greenmail with a good chance of being successful!
Thanks to the chart we created, no one - not the unions, not the news media, not even Governor Gavin Newsom - can claim that unions aren’t abusing the state’s environmental laws to obtain Project Labor Agreements. This means a great deal in these court cases.
You can see this incredible, one-of-a-kind list at our Phony Union Tree Huggers website: DOCUMENTED CONSTRUCTION UNION ABUSE OF CALIFORNIA ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY ACT (CEQA) 2014-2019
Now we’re gearing up for another year of union harassment. Will you help us with some funding to maintain and grow this chart of abuse? A donation today will help us maintain our ability to fight all of this and to help win those court cases!
You can use a credit card HERE and help us right now! Or, should you prefer, you can send a check to CFEC at P.O. Box 1627 Poway, CA. 92074. Either way it will make a difference.
Here's to a wonderful New Year, a year where we finally put an end to environmental extortion.
