AGC’s Labor Relations Department has a proud history as the leader in the Union construction industry negotiating with the basic trades.

The AGC represents the largest multi-employer bargaining unit in the region, consisting of hundreds of union contractors, which produces millions of man-hours per year.

The strength and relevance of our collective bargaining agreements and labor relations activity is driven by our trusted relationships with union contractors and leadership on the many union trust funds.
