WHEREAS, the Departments of Law and Labor have reported that there exists a pattern of willful noncompliance with the state local autonomy statute AS 23.40.050 and the regulations and policies of the State with respect to local autonomy of labor organizations; and
WHEREAS, it would be contrary to the public interest to permit persons or organizations in violation of the laws, regulations and policies of the State, to benefit directly or indirectly from contracts with the State of Alaska or involving public funds of the State;
NOW, THEREFORE, by virtue of the authority vested in me as Governor, I hereby order the following:
1. All future contracts made, entered into or approved by the State or any office or agency thereof, shall include the following provision on local autonomy and non-discrimination against local residents which all contractors shall be required to accept as a condition of being awarded such contract:
“The contractor agrees that he will not enter into any contracts or labor agreements with, nor will he accept any dispatch or referral of employees from, any labor or other organization which is not in compliance with the state local autonomy law (AS
23.40.050) and all state regulations made pursuant thereto, nor will the contractor enter into any contract or labor agreement with, or accept any dispatch or referral of employees from, any organization, individual or union which has been found by the Department of Labor or other duly authorized officer or agency of the state government to have 100 or more members in good standing who reside or work in Alaska but not to have one or more duly chartered and established local organizations in this state, or to have practiced employment discrimination against local residents.
“Contractor further agrees that he will require this provision to be inserted in any and all other contracts, subcontracts or labor agreements entered into by the contractor and to be performed in whole or in part within the State of Alaska.
“Contractor further agrees that he will not himself discriminate against Alaska residents with respect to opportunities, conditions or tenure of employment under this contract or under any contract to which contractor is a party and which is to be performed in whole or in part within the State of Alaska.
“Noncompliance with any portion of these provisions shall be deemed a breach of this contract and cause for termination and revocation of the contractor’s authorization to bid on future contracts with the State of Alaska if not corrected within 10 days after written notice is given to the contractor by the state or an office or agency thereof.”
This Order takes effect immediately.
