Start a Career on the Metro Rail Today!
Metro’s contractor, Walsh/Shea, has hired PVJOBS to facilitate the hiring process and act as liaison with local unions for the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Projet. PVJOBS will connect disadvantaged workers with the contractors for hiring by reaching out to local unions and requesting interested workers and apprentices who fit the criteria of the job initiative.
In 2012, Metro became the nation’s first transit agency to adopt a Project Labor Agreement (PLA) with national targeted local hiring goals for federally funded, Federal Transit Administration approved projects valued over $2.5 million. The historic PLA will provide construction employment and training opportunities to many who reside along the project alignment.
