Some of the requirements included in the proposal are:
Developers and union officials meet with city officials 90 days prior to the start of construction in order to lay out how they plan to fulfill the requirements of the ordinance.
That the city notify the Jersey City Board of Education, the Jersey City Employment and Training Program and the Jersey City Housing Authority of the availability of apprenticeships prior to construction.
That the developer advertise the apprenticeship jobs in two local newspapers.
That the developer and the union hold at least two job fairs at a location to be provided by the city.
Union representatives' attendance yesterday was noteworthy since it was the unions that fought and defeated Jersey City's previous attempt at instituting a quota system.
