The people I've met through AGC have helped me both personally and professionally. Every contractor needs those resources and those relationships. If you want to be successful, well then, you need AGC.
“Card Check” Would Impact Specialty Contractors – Be Informed!
On March 10, the "so-called" Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) was introduced in both the House and the Senate. EFCA would take away a worker's right to a federally supervised private ballot election when deciding whether or not to select union representation. AGC supports the status quo, which allows both card-check recognition and secret-ballot elections to establish union representation and remains the most fair and reliable way to determine the desire of employees to be represented by a union.
EFCA imposes unrealistically short deadlines for labor-management negotiations over a first contract before mandating third-party interference. It allows a third party to dictate wages, hours, and terms and conditions of employment. For more about EFCA, visit AGC's EFCA webpage.
