IMPERIAL — A construction coalition has formed to tackle Imperial Irrigation District over the use of project labor agreements for construction projects.

The United Desert Communities of Imperial and Riverside Counties said it was created “to fight discriminatory and costly PLA being pushed by construction unions on IID work.” The group said the PLA would send money out of desert communities and bring in out-of-town workers.
