Salem Harbor Redevelopment Project Labor Agreement

On behalf of our client Iberdrola Energy Projects, Inc., we successfully negotiated a project labor agreement (PLA) with more than 24 trade unions for the construction of a $750 million combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) electric generating power plant in Salem, Massachusetts. This challenging project was made more complex by months of unanticipated delays relating to environmental permitting and financing issues. Nevertheless, construction commenced in April 2015, and when complete the new CCGT plan will supply electricity to more than 600,000 homes while lowering regional greenhouse gas emissions.
