AGC Union Contractors to Meet with Basic Trades Leaders on Oct. 17; Registration Now Open

The Union Contractors Committee will hold two events for union contractors and their chapters on October 17, 2011, in Washington, DC:  an AGC-Basic Trades Forum and a Union Contractors Committee Meeting.  Chapter executives, chapter staff, and member leaders involved in collective bargaining or other labor relations matters for AGC union contractors are invited and encouraged to attend both meetings.

The AGC-Basic Trades Forum will be held in the morning, following an AGC-only breakfast and briefing for early arrivals.  All basic trade general presidents will be invited along with leaders of the Building and Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO.  Like the AGC-Basic Trades Forum held in October 2007, the event will be an opportunity for union contractors to explain to the union leaders about the challenges they are currently facing and to discuss with the union leaders other matters of mutual interest.  The format will include brief introductory remarks followed by a moderated question-and-answer period, based on questions collected by union contractors in advance.  If time allows, questions will also be taken directly from the floor.

The Union Contractors Committee Meeting will take place in the afternoon, beginning with lunch.  The meeting will include a discussion of the AGC-Basic Trades Forum, a discussion of the results of an AGC collective bargaining chapter survey that will be conducted later this month, and a strategic planning session building on the survey results to discuss how AGC and the committee can best serve AGC’s union contractors today. 

The tentative schedule of events is as follows:

8:00 – 9:15 a.m.         Early Arrivals Breakfast & Briefing (AGC only)
9:15 – 9:30                  Break
9:30 – 11:30                AGC-Basic Trades Forum (with labor)
11:30 – 12:00 pm       Break
12:00 – 1:00                 Lunch & Debrief of Forum (AGC only)
1:00 – 3:00 pm             Union Contractors Committee Strategic Planning Session (AGC only)
