  Heavy & Highway Alliance Executive Speaks About National Project Agreement
Raymond J. Poupore, executive director of the National Heavy & Highway Alliance (the Alliance), met with representatives of chapters serving union highway contractors during AGC’s Annual Convention on March 16.

The Alliance is the administrator of the national Heavy and Highway Construction Project Agreement.  Mr. Poupore explained how the Alliance attempts to achieve its mission of helping customers to be more competitive in the bidding process and reviewed the principal terms of the agreement.

The Alliance has seven affiliated building trade unions and bargains with the North American Contractors Association.  Currently, there are 141 projects in 21 states, totaling $5.1 billion in construction, in progress under the agreement.
