ABC Advances The Merit Shop Philosophy

For more than 70 years, ABC has been the leading voice promoting the merit shop philosophy in construction. ABC members are champions of free enterprise and open competition committed to delivering high-quality, safe construction projects awarded to the most qualified bidder based on merit, not mandates or political favoritism. More than 88% of the U.S. construction workforce has freely chosen not to join a union.
