Political Advocacy

ABC actively works with all levels of government to represent member interests and the merit shop construction industry. We employ a full time lobbyist who advocates in Harrisburg for the needs of our members. 

Over the years ABC has:


  • Helped fight PLAs in the Western Pennsylvania region.  
  • Helped make sure the Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) was passed. 
  • Advocated for policies that reduced the cost of health care for employers and employees.
