When we say we’re better prepared to meet workforce challenges, we mean it.

Recent data backs up the fact that union construction is doing a better job of meeting workforce needs even in today’s challenging environment.

An Associated General Contractors of America’s (AGC) survey of more than 5,000 of their member contractor firms found that “the skilled labor shortage is much less severe in the union segment of the industry.” Even during the pandemic, union construction’s pipeline of skilled workers fared far better than the non-union competition.
