Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) is a national trade association representing the merit shop construction industry. ABC is a federation of 74 chapters with 22,000 commercial contractors and construction-related firms among its members. The association was founded in 1950 to advocate “for free enterprise and open competition in the U.S. construction industry.”
Their positions regarding the Davis-Bacon Act and Project Labor Agreements often pit them in political battles against labor unions from the building trades. The Center for Responsive Politics has designated ABC as a “Heavy Hitter”, rating it among the largest overall contributors to federal elections over the past two decades. The grou also ranks among the 50 largest trade associations in the nation according to Washington Business Journal.
