AGC Meets with Labor Secretary Acosta 

Prioritizes Workforce Training, Regulatory Reform 
AGC CEO Stephen Sandherr and members of AGC’s Government Affairs staff met with Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta this week to discuss working with him and the Trump Administration on workforce development, labor and employment issues, and regulatory reform. In advance of the meeting, AGC provided a list of Labor Department regulatory requirements that could be abandoned or modified to ease the regulatory burden on contractors and address the skills gap.
AGC’s hopes to work with the Labor Department on keeping American workers safe and healthy while stimulating economic growth and creating jobs. AGC identified ways to achieve these goals through regulatory reduction and streamlining, strengthening the symbiotic partnership between DOL and the construction industry and enhancing present regulatory compliance education and collaboration initiatives.
