A Partner in the Bid Process:
Contractors who partner with unions increase their chances of winning more projects. Unions advocate for contractors before procurement agencies and work to hold competing contractors accountable to applicable safety and workmanship rules. Unions work to ensure that bids are awarded based on construction competency, efficiency, and merit—so that more honest businesses can flourish. Unions also include a more diverse workforce, which is an important consideration for many entities in awarding contracts.
