Bill Spencer, vice president of government affairs for Associated Builders and Contractors, which represents nonunion companies and has waged a high-profile campaign to head off a labor agreement on the Wilson Bridge, said Glendening's labor agreement was patently unfair to nonunion shops, which make up 85 percent of Maryland contractors.
"If you win the bid, you have to sign the union-only agreement. You have to use union restrictive work practices. Your employees have to pay into union benefits funds. They have to pay dues ," Spencer said. "Anybody can bid. But if you win the bid, basically your employees have to join the union."
