Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) is a national construction industry trade association representing nearly 21,000 chapter members. Founded on the merit shop philosophy, ABC and its 70 chapters help members develop people, win work and deliver that work safely, ethically, profitably and for the betterment of the communities in which ABC and its members work. ABC’s membership represents all specialties within the U.S. construction industry and is comprised primarily of firms that perform work in the industrial and commercial sectors.

ABC was founded in 1950 when seven contractors gathered in Baltimore, Md., to create an association based on the shared belief that construction projects should be awarded on merit to the most qualified and responsible low bidders. The courage and dedication of those seven contractors helped to quickly spread the merit shop philosophy, within time making ABC the fastest growing association in the United States. Today, ABC is recognized as one of the leading organizations representing America’s business community and the merit shop construction industry.

  1. Very important for the coming Federal Election, is the way the ABC has been infiltrated by Murdoch staffers. A process that started with the appointment of Michelle Guthrie as MD for 5yrs in May 2016 (just in time to axe Fact Check for the election!!). This week in senate questionings Kristine Keneally got Minister Fifield to admit he was a member of IPA one of whose aims is the dismantling altogether of the ABC. How can the Minister of Communications not have a conflict of interest ? The IPA also seems to be getting very active against the ABC, taking advantage of the Guthrie regime. Leigh Sales 7.30 is barely watchable. Pat Karvelas of the same mould has a Sunday night spot with the same m.o. be rude and continually interrupt Labor guests like Bill Shorten, but give free rein to any Liberal ! Meanwhile Emma Alberici, who far surpasses these 2, is languishing in a backroom, suffering from political interference (Turnbull & FIifield in parliament) and Murchoch vilifaction whenever they can. I imagine she is keeping a detailed journal though and keeping it off site too! So we have ABC news and current affairs is currently run by Murdoch staff, pushing the Liberal line and ignoring anything to do with Labor. I still cant believe that Four Corners and MadAsHell havent been axed! Keep your eye on them folks!
