Tell lawmakers to restore fairness in federal contracting by restricting anti- competitive and costly government-
mandated PLAs on federal and federally assisted construction projects. Ask your representatives in the 113th Congress to co-sponsor the Government Neutrality in Contracting Act (H.R. 436/S. 109) via this user friendly Grassroots Action Center Alert.

ABC strongly opposes government-mandated project labor agreements on public construction projects.

Anti-competitive project labor agreements (PLAs) are special interest schemes that end open, fair and competitive bidding on public works projects. PLAs drive up the cost of construction by reducing competition and effectively excluding merit shop contractors and their skilled employees from building projects paid for by their own tax dollars.
