  • Understanding Pre-Hire Agreements, Union Security Clauses, and Hiring Hall Arrangements in the Construction Industry
  • National Labor Relations Act Rights of Nonunion Employees
  • Multiemployer Pension Issues:  Calculating Withdrawal Liability & Update on FASB Initiatives
  • Independent Contractors and Employee Misclassification in Construction

  • Davis-Bacon Act Misclassification and Compliance
  • Primer on §§8(b)(4) and Bannering:  A Legal Analysis & Practical Responses
  • Update on Project Labor Agreements on Federal & Federally Assisted Projects

Handouts from most of the presentations are posted in the Labor & HR Topical Resources area of AGC's website, integrated into their respective topic areas.  Access is free and exclusive to AGC members and Chapter staff.

Symposium guest speakers included Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon and member Mark Pearce of the National Labor Relations Board, who spoke about issues before the Board that impact construction employers.  Brett Loper, former AGC staff associate who now serves as policy director to Speaker of the House John Boehner, delivered the Charles E. Murphy Keynote Address, providing insight into various matters and challenges currently facing Congress.
