In Minnesota, nearly half a million low-wage workers deserve a wage. They help us raise our children, care for our aging parents, clean our offices, serve our food and more. They help everybody else do their jobs, yet htey don't share in the prosperity they help create. Their professions have been undervalued for far too long and it's time to make their hard work pay.

Work on the new $763 million MN Vikings stadium (officially the "Minnesota Multi-Purpose Stadium") will be an all-union job. Construction will involve an estimated 4 million work hours. At construction peak, some 1,300-1,400 workers will be on-site. The public authority which will own the stadium, the MN Sports Facilities Authority, required the project contractor to negotiate a "Project Labor Agreement" with the Mpls Building and Construction Trades Council. A Project Labor Agreement serve a public purpose by ensuring that the work on the project continues on schedule without any labor disputes. read more
