ABC members can take advantage of a variety of tools, including a website, www.shameonunionbanners.com
, and a member resources guide, to counteract union bannering campaigns.
Bannering, or the display of large signs often containing misleading claims at sites belonging to neutral parties or secondary employers, is a tactic used by unions across the country to threaten or coerce these firms into hiring unionized contractors.
ABC’s website, www.shameonunionbanners.com
, describes bannering, provides some myths and facts and is a portal to display and archive valuable videos and news stories.
In addition, ABC has collected best practice and other sample materials that contractors and chapters can use as resources. These materials, along with other helpful strategic and tactical information, are available in the ABC Bannering Resource Guide, which can be viewed on ABC’s Academy for Construction Ethics, Compliance and Best Practices
. The Academy is a member-only resource that requires a login. The login can be obtained by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
and including their name, company and ABC Chapter.
