The major elements of Proposition A aren’t entirely new to San Diego. Voters in Chula Vista and Oceanside and across the county passed similar ballot initiatives in recent years.

Each measure banned government from requiring project labor agreements — a union-friendly contract often used for major construction projects. Prop A. would do the same for the city of San Diego.

In a recent interview, Prop. A supporter Eric Christen expressed confidence that voters would support another ban of the agreements. He claimed every precinct in the county had supported the same idea in 2010.

In the latest edition of Fact Check TV, Andrew Donohue and Scott Lewis examine the election results from 2010 and whether Christen’s claim is true or false. For a more in-depth look at Prop A, check out our reader’s guide to the surrounding debate.
