The PRO Act is federal legislation and the most important legislation affecting Virginians in the construction industry. I am a Virginia Beach native, but worked for over 10 years for a company headquartered in New York City, where there is no “right-to-work” statute. Frankly, I do not want to see Virginia end up like New York, and if you agree, I would ask you to contact Senator Warner in Washington and let them know you are opposed to the PRO Act. Not only does the PRO Act get rid of Virginia’s “right-to-work” status, it severely tips the scales away from open and fair competition. It will result in increased strikes, a less competitive marketplace, and ultimately harm your business, whether or not you currently are a signatory to unions or not.
In addition to our diligent advocacy efforts, AGCVA is working hard on your behalf in numerous other ways. I am excited about getting together with the strategic plan task force this week. All can agree we have made great strides in our current plan over the past four years. Our task force meetings over the next several months will be a balance of state and local district officers. We are confident we have an inclusive group to grow and better our association for all members in the years ahead.
As we do this important work, AGCVA looks forward to the summer months ahead and many of us gathering socially in groups for the first time in over a year. You will see a number of in-person events listed below. We hope that our members will keep things open, keep themselves and colleagues safe by getting vaccinated and/or wearing a mask, and following our guidelines when joining us in-person. See you soon at the next AGCVA event!
