ABC was built on the merit shop concept. That is, we believe all contracts should be awarded to the lowest responsible bidder. ABC fights to guarantee that right. Merit shop also means employers have a responsibility to develop a healthy, productive relationship with their workers. ABC provides services and programs to help facilitate that relationship. The merit shop concept and the free enterprise ethic go hand in hand.
We are the construction industry leader who is committed to developing a safe workplace and a high-performance workforce through quality education and training. We offer a variety of workshops and classes, and provide our members a comprehensive employee benefits plan.
The membership of ABC includes over 23,000 general contractors, specialty contractors, suppliers and associate members. ABC’s headquarters near Washington, DC, spearheads our national programs and is responsible for developing and implementing a whole range of activity to serve nation-widemembers.
