ABCNM members gain the knowledge and representation needed to protect their companies from unfair and anti-competitive business practices. ABCNM’s merit shop philosophy and fair and open competition political agenda rank among the main reasons why companies join and remain in ABCNM.

“Merit Shop” is a way of doing business in which companies reward employees based on performance and encourage them to reach their highest level of achievement, and in which contracts are awarded based on safety, quality, and value, regardless of labor affiliation.”
