LAX airport CBA

The LAX airport expansion CBA demonstrates the flexibility and adaptability of this method of negotiating. In December, 2004, the Los Angeles City Council approved the agreement reached between Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), the public administrator of LAX, and a coalition of twenty-two community groups concerning an $11 billion airport expansion. Among the coalition’s members were two local school districts and organizations representing community, religious, environmental and labor interests.

In addition to provisions covering job training, first-source hiring and living-wage requirements, the CBA also devoted substantial resources toward mitigating the environmental impacts of the airport. The airport thus contracted to provide more than $8.5 million annually for the soundproofing of local schools, city buildings, places of worship and homes, and it agreed to fund studies on air quality and community health. Further, the CBA required LAX to implement a number of environmental controls, including the electrification of passenger gates and cargo areas (to reduce the need for engine idling), emissions reductions and the conversion of airport vehicles to alternative fuels. The CBA also clearly required LAWA to incorporate CBA provisions into all airport contracts, lease agreements, and licensing or permitting agreements, thus ensuring the translation of the requirements to the airport’s contractors and tenants.

I would say this was one of the best decision they made. It also gives businesses that offers airport parking an opportunity and give their customers convenience at the same time. Win-win!

Thanks for the documents Amy!

Referred by a friend. Could not have been happier with our choice. Professional, courteous service, a sparkling clean, shiny black stretch limo, and a great driver. We felt very well taken care of. Highly recommended.

Its notable that apart from covering job training, first-source hiring and living-wage requirements, they are also devoted toward mitigating the environmental impacts of the expandings happening at this airport. gatwick meet and greet
