We also interact with a broader coalition of business groups such as CalChamber, CALBO, CBIA, California Association of Realtors to name a few. And finally, while we represent the open shop plumbing contractors, we recognize the influence wielded by the construction trades unions. Our lobbyist has a cordial working relationship with all of the trades and can collaborate on issues that cross the usual union/open-shop divide.
