The Oakland Board of Port Commissioners authorizes negotiation on a historic Maritime Project Labor Agreement (MAPLA) that revolutionized local hiring and created a national model for union agreements. MAPLA supports local and small companies to do business with the Port. MAPLA also increases local hiring for airport and seaport capital projects.
