Issue Brief

Independent Contractors

Independent contractors are an important part of the construction industry due to its fluctuating work demands and are often the answer to a pressing demand for the special skills and know-how required for short-term projects.
Issue Brief

OSHA Reform

ABC member companies believe safety is a core value, above all others, and is the basis of their culture. ABC understands the importance of common-sense regulations based on sound evidence and scientific analysis with appropriate consideration paid to implementation costs and input from employers.
Issue Brief

Regulatory Reform

ABC is committed to reforming the broken federal regulatory process and ensuring industry stakeholders' voices are heard and rights are protected.
Issue Brief

Right to Secret Ballot Election

All workers, in every industry, deserve the fundamental American right to a federally supervised secret ballot election. This right is guaranteed when voting in political elections; there is no reason it should be surrendered in the workplace.
Issue Brief

Right to Work

Right to Work laws guarantee workers can seek employment without fearing they will be required to join (or pay) a union if they are hired.
Issue Brief

Salting Abuse

Salting is not merely an organizing tool—it has become an instrument of economic destruction aimed at nonunion companies.
Issue Brief

Tax Reform

The construction industry historically has paid the highest effective tax rate of any economic sector in the country.
Issue Brief

Workforce Development

There are limitless opportunities through government defined and industry workforce development programs to build the American workforce. Through innovative and unique platforms, all Americans can develop skills to achieve their dreams.
Issue Brief

Davis-Bacon Act/Prevailing Wage

More than 80 years old, the Davis-Bacon Act is a wage subsidy law administered and enforced by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) that mandates so-called “prevailing” wages for work performed on federally financed construction projects.
Issue Brief

Energy/Environment

The commercial construction industry has a unique interest in energy policy, as it represents not only a large-scale energy consumer, but also acts as a key facilitator of domestic energy exploration, production and transportation.
Issue Brief

Health Care

Providing quality health care benefits is a top priority for ABC and its member companies. ABC continues to advocate for policies that would address the skyrocketing costs of health insurance and provide greater choice.
