About Us

The Building Dignity and Respect Standards Council (BDC) is a standards-setting and monitoring organization for the non-union construction industry. BDC utilizes the Worker-driven Social Responsibility (WSR) model (wsr-network.org). Under this program, Developers enter legally-binding agreements with BDC that require all non-union contractors at every tier of a project to abide by basic standards that guarantee the rights of workers to fair treatment, a safe workplace, and a voice in their working conditions. In addition to BDC’s independent monitoring, workers are empowered as frontline monitors and defenders of their own rights, with strict protections against retaliation. Market consequences for non-compliant contractors ensure swift resolutions with meaningful remedies when violations are uncovered.
