AGC Meets with Labor Secretary Acosta
AGC CEO Stephen Sandherr and staff met with new Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta on June 15 to discuss AGC’s labor policy priorities and how we can work with him and the Trump Administration on workforce matters. AGC representatives informed Sec. Acosta about AGC’s concerns and positions related to such matters as: OSHA’s silica and electronic recordkeeping rules, the federal contractor paid sick leave rule, Davis-Bacon reform, project labor agreements, multiemployer pension plans, and workforce development. The meeting was friendly and productive, and AGC is optimistic about further collaboration.
AGC’s hopes to work with the Labor Department on keeping American workers safe and healthy while stimulating economic growth and creating jobs. In advance of the meeting, AGC provided a list of regulatory requirements that could be abandoned or modified to ease the regulatory burden on contractors and address the skills gap. AGC has identified ways to achieve these goals through regulatory reduction and streamlining, strengthening the symbiotic partnership between DOL and the construction industry, and enhancing present regulatory compliance education and collaboration initiatives.
