From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Revised Philadelphia Plan was a plan that required government contractors in Philadelphia to hire minority workers. Department of Labor Assistant Secretary for Wage and Labor Standards Arthur Fletcher implemented the Revised Philadelphia Plan in 1969, based on an earlier plan developed in 1967 by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance and the Philadelphia Federal Executive Board. The plan required federal contractors to meet certain goals for the hiring of African American employees by specific dates in order to combat institutionalized discrimination on the part of specific skilled building trades unions. The plan was quickly extended to other cities. In 1971, the Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal to the Fourth Circuit's decision in the case of Contractors' Association of Eastern Pennsylvania v. Schultz, et al, thereby de facto upholding the legality of the Revised Philadelphia Plan.
