Labor Equity in Construction Contracts

The City promotes access to construction careers for women, people of color and others with social and economic disadvantages. On Jan. 29, 2015, Mayor Murray signed a new ordinance passed by Seattle City Council to approve a priority hire program for City public works construction projects of $5 million or more. Using City-funded construction projects, the Priority Hire Program will prioritize the hiring of residents that live in economically distressed areas, particularly in Seattle and King County.
