Buffalo Common Council supports CBA
In Buffalo, N.Y., the Common Council unanimously passed a resolution supporting a CBA for the heavily subsidized Canal Side Bass Pro project. A copy of the resolution is here. It says that the CBA will include: job quality provisions, including living wage requirements; green building requirements; provision for at least one third of the housing units to be affordable; a set aside of 75% of the non-Bass Pro business space for local and independent businesses; and local and minority hiring goals.
