Who We Are

Concerned Contractors is a coalition of open shop and union shop contractors (plumbers, electricians, HVAC and building trades) that have organized to represent the many small business owners and construction workers across the state.  The mission of the coalition is to bring unfair and needlessly expensive bidding to the attention of taxpayers, school board officials, legislators and the media.

During a period that a waiver system existed from 2000 to 2010 limiting the number of bids allowed on school construction projects, a group of plumbing, electrical, HVAC contractors and their workers banded together as the Concerned Contractors.  Contractors and workers were all feeling the same thing – shut out from projects in their own towns and local school districts.  Thousands of small business owners were being denied opportunities to participate, while only large general contractors/brokers were allowed to submit bids.
