Procurement Perspectives: Value for money: Bill 66 and union versus non-union – constructconnect.com

“My research has suggested that it would be difficult to come to a definitive conclusion at this time as to how this new Bill 66 will affect the government procurement process.

On one hand, I have said that when you restrict bids, the price goes up.

I have also said that if too many contractors pick up bids (over seven for example), it is less likely that those contractors will take the time to compete with such a large pool of bidders.

I have not seen any undisputed, factual, information that the cost of using union contractors on large construction projects borders on a 40 per cent premium.

It has been my observation that the main reason for over-priced projects can be directly attributed to the procurement process, not labour rates.”

Union Blog

Hello Brothers & Sisters,

I am going to try my hand at writing a new blog for Union information, I will make an attempt at keeping it short but also informative.

My writing skills are amateurish at best so please allow for grammar and spelling, if you have any input you would like to share that could really help!

Fraternally,

Norm Swaebe
