Labor Relations

AGC of Washington provides a wide range of labor services for both union and open-shop contractors.

UPDATE: 2022 Labor Negotiations

Teamsters Strike: (Please note: AGC of Washington does not negotiate on behalf of concrete suppliers.
The following information has been compiled for your review.)
AGC of Washington believes that the Teamsters and the four concrete suppliers involved in this dispute must accept the services of a federal mediator, whose sole purpose is to aid in the resolution of stalled negotiations.
Federal mediators provide a third-party perspective and address the core interests of both parties.
After a month of industry disruption, we fail to see a successful resolution without this tool.

Dual-Gate System Packet
This packet defines the procedure under the National Labor Relations Act which isolates a disputing union and employer, thereby allowing other neutral contractors to continue working. AGC of Washington members may purchase printed dual-gate signs, as well as a guide for procedures on establishing a dual-gate system, for $20 plus tax for the pair, at the Seattle AGC office -(1200 Westlake Avenue N, suite 301).
