MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR

THE BIG 3!

APPRENTICESHIP GRADUATION

Congratulations to the 2024 graduating class which consists of 86 apprentices! With the current labor shortage, this annual event is more important than ever as it showcases the women and men who have chosen careers in the trades. Let's come together to cheer them on!

If you've ever been to the ABC National Convention and Craft Competition, you know how inspiring it is. I highly recommend attending. Let's show our apprentices our support and gratitude as they embark on their journey to become the next wave of skilled craft professionals. They will be the ones building our communities and so much more in the future.

We all have a part to play in spreading the word. Let's use our companies and social media platforms to excite and inspire the next wave of potential apprentices.

SAFETY SUMMIT

This newly created event has everything we need. From leadership to the safety committee, there's something for everyone. With fantastic keynote and breakout session speakers discussing topics related to Total Human Health, Safety Protection, and more, this event is not to be missed!

Knowledge is power, and this event will help us accelerate our efforts to support our people and companies. It's time to change the narrative that Merit shop contractors are unsafe and address the fact that the construction industry has the highest rate of suicide among all industries.

Don't miss out on this opportunity!

CONSTRUCTION

TECHNOLOGY CONFERENCE

At ABC Keystone we're exploring the potential of technology. And why wouldn't we? It's one of the most essential aspects of our daily business operations.

From traditional tools like project management, scheduling, and field management software to cutting-edge technologies like virtual reality and AI, the landscape is evolving rapidly. It's crucial to stay informed about the latest advancements and learn from others' successes.

That's why Keystone is hosting a full day of speakers, sponsors, and tools for you to explore. Industry professionals will be on hand to guide us through what's available and help us navigate the decision-making process when selecting new products to evaluate and implement. We encourage company leadership, including project managers and technologists, to attend.

Additionally, we'll be forming a technology committee for 2025 and will be looking for candidates at the conference. If you're interested, this is an event you won't want to miss. We'll also be surveying attendees to determine what technology training and support Keystone can provide to members in 2025 and beyond. Your input will help shape our future initiatives.

Stay tuned

FROM THE CEO-PRESIDENT

Biden Wants to Run Your Business...

In the wake of President Biden's tenure, concerns about the overreach of executive power and its implications for businesses have come to the forefront. Promises of unity and bipartisanship have seemingly given way to a series of executive orders and regulatory measures that could fundamentally alter the landscape of American enterprise. With the administration's focus on bolstering unions and enacting stringent regulations, the future of free enterprise hangs in the balance.

One of the most alarming aspects of the Biden administration's approach is its utilization of executive orders and regulatory maneuvers to enact sweeping changes, circumventing the traditional legislative process. Despite campaign pledges of inclusivity, these actions have raised concerns about the erosion of democratic principles and the imposition of policies that could adversely affect businesses and their employees.

At the heart of the matter is the administration's fervent support for organized labor, evidenced by President Biden's declaration to be the most union-friendly president in history. While this may resonate with a segment of the workforce, the ramifications for businesses, particularly those adhering to the Merit Shop philosophy, are profound.

A closer look at recent regulatory developments reveals a pattern of measures that threaten the foundations of free enterprise:

NLRB

Rules on Union Organizing:

The National Labor Relations Board's (NLRB) new rules on union organizing have raised eyebrows by stripping employees of the right to a secret ballot and imposing tighter deadlines for employer responses. Critics argue that these changes set labor law back decades, undermining the principles of fairness and democratic representation.

Davis-Bacon Projects:

Changes to how wages are calculated and benefits handled in Davis-Bacon projects have significant implications for businesses operating in the construction sector. The alteration of longstanding practices could disrupt project planning and strain employer-employee relations.

Overtime Rule:

The Department of Labor's (DOL) new overtime rule, impacting salaried employees earning below a certain threshold, introduces added financial burdens for businesses already grappling with economic uncertainties. Compliance with these regulations could strain budgets and hinder operational flexibility.

Noncompete Clause Ban:

The Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) ban on noncompete clauses not only affects employee contracts but also introduces uncertainties in project and vendor agreements. The broad scope of this measure could impede innovation and

7 3

hinder businesses' ability to protect intellectual property.

Registered Apprenticeship Rule:

Despite promoting apprenticeship as a means to educate the future workforce, the DOL's new rule could stifle the expansion of apprenticeship programs and deter employer participation. This could exacerbate skills gaps and hinder economic growth.

PLAs on Federal Projects:

The executive order mandating Project Labor Agreements (PLAs) on federal projects over a certain threshold has sparked controversy, with critics alleging discrimination against the majority of the construction workforce. This move runs counter to principles of fairness and equal opportunity.

In response to these regulatory challenges, organizations like the Associated Builders and Contractors are mobilizing to defend the interests of businesses and promote the principles of free enterprise. Legal challenges against overreaching mandates underscore the importance of advocacy and engagement in the political process.

Looking ahead, the stakes are high for businesses as they navigate a landscape shaped by government policies and regulations. The enduring principle that "elections have consequences" rings true, emphasizing the need for active participation in shaping the future of business-friendly policies. In conclusion, the Biden administration's approach to governance has raised concerns about the preservation of free enterprise and the rights of businesses to operate without undue interference. As stakeholders grapple with the implications of regulatory changes, the imperative to safeguard democratic principles and economic freedoms has never been more pressing. Business leaders must heed the call to action: engage in politics or risk the erosion of the foundations upon which free enterprise thrives.

"Associated Builders and Contractors is mobilizing to defend the interests of businesses and promote the principles of free enterprise."

ADVOCACY UPDATE

The Path Ahead for PA

Anyone following Pennsylvania politics or news in recent history has likely felt like the world is losing its grip. Heading into a major election in 2024 has only exacerbated the situation.

We have witnessed a number of wild policies that seem more like problems seeking solutions (often creating crises in the process) or plain pandering to labor groups. Unfortunately, these policies have had a harmful effect on merit shops.

In the past month, we have seen even more of this ahead of the Primary Election, most notably with Governor Shapiro announcing that he is directing all state agencies to undertake capital projects under a Project Labor Agreement (PLA). While ABC is mounting a strong response to that announcement, it also highlights a major disconnect in governing, despite this being an election year.

For those keeping score, the governor has signed few bills into law, last year’s budget process was ugly, and this year does not look any better or timelier, with partisanship growing by the day.

Announcing an intent to implement a PLA in this environment, without being more focused on a state budget or the related policy issues that typically facilitate a budget deal, is counterproductive. It may electrify a base of labor supporters and help push that energy further into election cycles, but it is not a solution to the challenges facing Pennsylvania.

The only way to change course is for individuals to take a lead in changing the discourse, both at the ballot box and by engaging with public officials. The message is clear: this is not acceptable, and it needs to change.

As a coalition, all of ABC needs to push back against this status quo by surpassing the energy of Big Labor. We ask you to pay close attention to our communications in the next few weeks as we issue more calls to action on key bills that may move, so you can share your concerns with legislators. Join our campaign against PLAs, participate in legislator meetings both in Washington (ABC’s LegCon in June) and at home with local offices, and watch our list of endorsed candidates for November’s elections.

If you have any questions about how to get involved or what you can do, please contact Jim at jim@abckeystone.org.

MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

HARDING-YOST INSURANCE

n 1983, Jerry Harding and Lowell Yost merged their agencies, laying the foundation for our present-day company. Since then, their mission remains unchanged. As a leading independent agency, Harding-Yost is dedicated to upholding the company's core values. The mission is to provide the highest level of insurance integrity to their clients, the companies they represent, and the community they proudly serve.

We asked Daniel Trump, Partner, Commercial Account Executive about how being an ABC Keystone Member has impacted the business.

What about your company makes you most proud?

Our agency's ownership remains in-house, a conscious choice that preserves our independence, fuels our organic growth, and enables us to quickly respond to our customers' needs. This deliberate approach allows us to maintain the culture we've diligently fostered—a culture of community, customer care, employee fulfillment, and strong partnerships with carriers.

What are your company’s core values?

We are proud to be a trusted local agency. Harding-Yost Insurance is a dynamic independent insurance agency, serving clients throughout Pennsylvania and neighboring states. With over 30 professional members on our team, we are dedicated to upholding our founding core values while maintaining the highest level of insurance integrity.

What sets your company apart from its competitors?

HYI is a standout player in the independent insurance agency landscape. As a dynamic regional

agency, we've grown to over 30 employees while maintaining our local, mid-size identity. Our expertise, product offerings, and carrier partnerships rank among the best in the industry. Importantly, we've opted to remain independent, resisting pressures to sell to private equity or larger entities, and keeping ownership in-house.

What are your top 3 goals for your company?

1. To be a trusted, independentlyowned agency and a respected leader in the insurance industry.

2. To provide exceptional value and service to our customers, fostering trusted relationships with both customers and carrier partners.

3. To cultivate an outstanding workplace culture that prioritizes employee value, offering flexibility, employment perks, growth opportunities, collaborative teamwork, and community engagement.

"Being part of ABC has allowed us to forge new relationships while strengthening existing ones."

What exciting projects are on the horizon at your company?

In 2017, we relocated our company to a historic silk factory building in downtown Denver, which we renovated to accommodate our expanding team. Due to our continued growth, we have just completed our third office expansion and are already eager to start planning our fourth!

What do you consider to be your company's greatest achievement?

Over the past 40 years, we have evolved from a small agency with six employees to a thriving team of over 30 professionals. In the last six years alone, we have doubled our workforce,

7
I

establishing ourselves as a key player in Pennsylvania's insurance landscape. Despite the competitive industry, we have sustained organic growth while remaining independent.

How do you measure the success of your company?

• Retaining our engaged and committed employees who consistently provide exceptional service.

• Fostering long-term partnerships with insurance carriers and customers.

• Growing with existing clients who trust us with additional insurance requirements such as employee benefits and business insurance.

• Providing protection to our clients when unforeseen events occur.

How has being an ABC Member made an impact on your company?

Being part of ABC has allowed us to forge new relationships while strengthening existing ones. It offers an excellent opportunity to network in a relaxed atmosphere with friends, peers, and clients.

What advice would you give to potential and current ABC Members?

Prioritize integrity in all your dealings with customers, prospects, partners, and employees. While this may not always lead to immediate gains, it ensures sustainable longterm growth, value, and pride.

DANIEL REDCAY

PROJECT ENGINEER, WOHLSEN CONSTRUCTION

As an Emerging Leader, how has your involvement with ABC Keystone helped you?

I've been a committee member of ABC for three years now. Having grown up in the industry and in Lancaster County, I've known about the Chapter since I was young. During my time with ABC Keystone, I've had the opportunity to meet and connect with numerous professionals, make new friends, and contribute to making Central PA a better place. Being a part of ABC Keystone has been incredibly valuable to me.

Daniel Redcay Project Engineer

Q:

What role do you play in your organization?

As a Project Engineer at Wohlsen, I support both field and office operations. Onsite during construction, I work closely with the superintendent to maintain schedules, uphold high-quality standards, coordinate subcontractors, and prioritize safety. In the office, I assist with various tasks such as submittals, RFIs, change orders, and collecting and organizing closeout documents. Ultimately, my goal is to contribute to creating Raving Fan clients for Wohlsen.

What words of advice do you have for your fellow Emerging Leaders?

Don’t hesitate to reach out, meet people, and get involved in community leadership initiatives. Networking in this industry is invaluable, and ABC is a great place to start.

Why do you wake up and go to work every day?

There are a few reasons why I get up and go to work every day. Firstly, I'm fortunate to have a great group of colleagues at Wohlsen and across the construction industry here in the Central PA region. The construction industry here is tight-knit, with endless overlapping networks, and I love that aspect of our trade. Looking to the future, I'm excited about seeing the projects I've worked on and being able to tell my wife and kids, “Hey, I helped build that.” That sense of fulfillment is really important to me.

How Does OSHA’s New Walkaround Rule Impact a Contractor’s Rights and Conduct During an Inspection?

ince 1970, OSHA has provided both the employer and employees’ representatives the opportunity to accompany OSHA during its physical inspection, or “walk around,” of the job site. However, on April 1, 2024, OSHA issued a new, final rule that significantly changed the scope of who can participate in the walk around.

Prior to the enactment of this rule, OSHA required employees’ representatives to be employees of the employer unless, in the judgment of the Compliance Safety and Health Officer (CSHO), good cause was shown to establish that a third party was “reasonably necessary to the conduct of an effective and thorough physical inspection of the workplace.” CSHOs usually narrowly applied the exception to safety engineers or industrial hygienists whose specific expertise was necessary to assess a particular condition at the site. However, under the new rule, OSHA clarified that the CSHO may allow any third-party representative to participate in the walk around provided they are “reasonably necessary to the conduct of an effective

and thorough physical inspection of the workplace by virtue of their knowledge, skills, or experience.”

The new rule is intended to make it clear that permissible third-party representation during walk arounds expands well beyond safety engineers and industrial hygienists.

Who can the employees select as their representative under the new rule?

Under the new rule, employees can select a third-party representative whose interests may not be aligned with the employer, such as nonelected union organizers, attorneys, community organizers, interpreters, or activists. Ultimately, the determination of whether those individuals are “reasonably necessary” to conduct the inspection or have the appropriate “knowledge, skills, or experience” to assist lies solely with the CSHO.

What can the employer do if it objects to the employees’ representative?

The new rule does not change the CSHO’s obligation to determine with “reasonable certainty” that the third party is the employees’ representative. In order to do so, the CSHO must consult with a reasonable number of employees in the workplace. Thus, if the employer has an objection to the individual selected, it should request that the CSHO confer with a reasonable number of employees in the workplace to ascertain whether the third party is their selected representative.

What should the employer do if the employees’ representative disrupts the inspection?

Even if the CSHO initially allows the third party to participate in the walk around, it can withdraw its approval and deny the right to accompaniment to any person if their conduct interferes with a fair and orderly inspection. Further, everyone’s conduct during an inspection must not unreasonably disrupt the employer’s operations. Thus, if the employees’ third-party representative is disrupting the inspection

S 7 13

or the employer’s operations, the employer should request that the CSHO prevent the representative from continuing to participate in the walk around.

What other steps should employers take if a thirdparty representative participates in the walk around? If a third-party representative is participating in the walk around, employers should be careful to protect their confidential information and trade secrets from inadvertent disclosure. Critically, the new rule does not change an employer’s right to declare certain areas off-limits to representatives who do not work in that particular area to prevent the disclosure of trade secrets or confidential information. Companies should be prepared to identify areas that contain confidential information or trade secrets at the start of the inspection (during the opening conference) so that third-party representatives do not wander into areas where they can obtain the company’s confidential information.

The new OSHA walk around rule takes effect on May 31, 2024. If you have any other questions about the new OSHA walk around rule, please reach out to the attorneys at Cohen Seglias.
