AGC Midyear Meeting Will Provide Opportunities to Hear From Labor Department Officials and Basic Trade General Presidents

AGC of America’s 2005 Midyear Meeting will take place September 18-21 at the newly renovated Hyatt Regency Washington in the heart of Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.

The theme of this year’s meeting is “Inside Washington – Access, Advocacy, and You.”  The many valuable events scheduled to take place at the conference include two very special sessions focusing on labor and employment matters:

Town Hall Meeting with the Department of Labor:  On Monday, September 19, at 8:30 a.m., the Open Shop Committee, HR Network, Safety & Health Committee, and Workforce Development Committee will present a session offering an unprecedented opportunity to meet officials from various agencies within the U.S. Department of Labor.  Representatives from the Employment and Training Administration, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, the Office of Compliance Assistance Policy, and the Wage and Hour Division will talk about their agencies’ current initiatives and will answer audience questions about compliance concerns.

Union Construction - What Lies Ahead:  Perspectives From the Basic Trades:  On Monday, September 19, at 11:00 a.m., the Union Contractors Committee will present a session brought back by popular demand from the 2003 Midyear Meeting.  Leaders from three of the largest basic trade unions will share their views of the future of union construction and of the salient issues facing union contractors and building trades today.  The panel will include Carpenters General President Doug McCarron, Iron Workers General President Joe Hunt, and Operating Engineers General President Vince Giblin.
