ABC and the Merit Shop Philosophy
Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) is the fastest-growing construction trade association in the country because ABC supports the sound merit shop philosophy at the heart of the free enterprise system. The merit shop is a force for the economy and efficiency in construction, regardless of organizational affiliation. ABC believes all contractors qualified for a particular job should have a right to bid on that job, regardless of labor affiliation. These beliefs translate into a healthy, competitive and professional climate, the results of which are proudly reflected in ABC members¹ construction accomplishments.
