July: BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Month

Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) Mental Health Month is a time to raise awareness around the unique mental health concerns and needs of diverse racial and ethnic populations.

Stay Safe In The Heat

BAC members across the country regularly work in conditions outdoors in direct sunlight or in enclosed spaces that are not climate-controlled. This leads construction workers to suffer from heat-related illnesses and, in severe cases, death.

Before working in extreme heat, review the Center for Construction Research and Training (CPWR) checklists: Overall Heat-Illness Prevention Program Checklist for Construction and Daily Heat-Illness Prevention Checklist for Construction

OSHA's Heat Illness Prevention campaign educates employers and workers on heat hazards and provides resources to keep workers safe.

We Oppose Any National "Right to Work" Legislation

We oppose any potential national "Right to Work" legislation in Congress. We are in favor of laws that make it easier to form and join labor unions. We believe "Right to Work" laws only benefit the wealthiest of Americans and are regressive in nature.
