Loan/borrow manpower

1880 10
I'm curious to know what city and state you guys have seen companies trading manpower? Looking to bid work out of state and thought it might be a way to cut down on per diem and labor costs from a temp agency.

What would happen if a local had an agreement with a contractor to loan “loan him guys” on an as needed basis, but required other contractors to be signatory contractors in order to hire out of the hall? It would probably loose signatory contractors? It would also open them up to a liability in their contract with the signatory contractors. I’m sure every local has a “Most Favored Nation” clause.

It also stops the local from letting one contractor have higher apprentice ratios, or let one contractor run a job at “B” rate, and make other contractors only use “A” rate.


Collective Bargaining Agreement: Most Favored Nation Clause

A Standard Clause to be included in a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) to allow an employer to obtain from a union the best economic terms for labor among all of the employers that have a collective bargaining relationship with the union within a specified industry or region. If the union subsequently enters into a CBA with a different employer in the identified industry or region that provides for lower-cost wages or benefits, an employer that has negotiated a most favored nation clause (MFN) can demand that its CBA be modified to adopt those more favorable wages and benefits. This Standard Clause is based on the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), but may be used by private sector employers subject to the Railway Labor Act (RLA) or public sector employers. This Standard Clause has integrated drafting notes with important explanations and negotiating tips.

Your not trading your borrowing. New guy in town wants to borrow labor, for a local job. That should go over well with the established contractors. Stick to the hall or temp agency. And be prepared for less than you think you should get. If a person is any good right now they are not available.

You are not exchanging your borrowed funds. For a local task, the new guy in town needs to borrow labor. The established contractors should appreciate that. Keep it in the hall or with a temp agency. Also, expect to get less than you believe you deserve. Right now, if someone is any good, they are unavailable.

What is your point? You used SWdwellers post to respond to mine, or were trying to quote us both, but didn’t put in a response?

The established contractors should appreciate that because of what? It's people looking for work, not contractors. It's much easier for them to overpay and hire someone they know and that person will be in debt and out of work. Hired workers don't all get hired through an agency, but the agency is a guarantor at the time of hiring. You can try to find a job directly with a contractor and get a contract. But when I did that I learned in advance Mortgage Advice Sheffield located that it is better not to take out a loan until the job is stable and there is no financial assurance.
