The Foundation for Fair Contracting of Massachusetts is pleased to publish the first issue of Public Construction Watch, our new semiannual newsletter. Public Construction Watch replaces two former FFCM publications—The Fair Contractor and The Wage Watch—both suspended in 2010 in the wake of the Massachusetts construction industry’s hard hitting downturn .
Our new publication provides updates on FFCM activity and contains stories of interest to workers, contractors, unions and awarding authorities. You’ll find information on the latest developments in bidding, prevailing wage compliance and apprenticeship and learn how new legislation and case decisions could impact you. Reports on successful wage complaints and contractors cited by the Attorney General will also be featured.
This first issue is devoted to significant news developments since the downturn.
