ABC was rated by Fortune magazine as one of the top 50 most influential groups in Washington. With more than 22,000 member companies we are the voice of merit shop and free enterprise in the construction industry. Specifically, ABC supports its members with focus on the following issues that greatly impact our industry:
• Fighting frivolous lawsuits meant to put companies out of business.
• Reform prevailing wage laws in California to make them easier to comply with and understand. Also, ensure prevailing wages reflect wage rates in the local area.
• Push back against discriminatory Project Labor Agreements (PLA) that prevent Merit Shop workers from working on construction projects. Watch our video about PLA's here.
• Apprenticeship and training issues in construction.
