Political Advocacy

Defending Your Business and the Merit Shop

CT ABC provides our members with lobbying and political advocacy efforts at our State Capitol and in every municipality across Connecticut.  Our defense and support of CT ABC’s Merit Shop Philosophy is one of the main reasons that companies join CT ABC.

As the use of anti-competitive Project Labor Agreements (PLAs) continues to rise in Connecticut, it is important that you have a voice to protect the open shop, and defend against discriminatory bidding regulations. It is CT ABC’s belief that all contracts should be awarded based on safety, quality, and providing the best product, regardless of labor affiliation.

CT ABC takes tremendous pride in being your voice. To get involved, or for more information about what CT ABC is doing to fight for your business, contact Chris Fryxell, Chapter President at 860-838-6226 or chrisf@ctabc.org.
