About Merit

We’ve Been in Your Shoes.

The big corporations have cash to buy influence. You have the company you built with your bare hands. The one you’ve put your blood, sweat, and tears into. And sometimes that doesn’t feel like enough.

We know. We’ve been there.

In fact, Merit was born out of the 1982-85 recession that strangled our country. The founding contractors were fighting against pressures that had destroyed the workforce and depressed wages. They wanted to provide a better standard of living for their employees and improve the standing of our industry. And they realized they could only meet those goals by cooperating and banding together.

Today, Merit is the voice of the open shop construction industry. We believe that when employers treat their employees like family-- with respect and with the benefits they’ve earned-- small businesses succeed.

Alone, our voices weren’t enough. But together, they’ve created something amazing. Join us in support of your business and employees and our industry.
