The Construction Management Bureau is an organization of contractors formed in 1972. Its purpose then and now, is to represent employers in Collective Bargaining with Trade Unions in the Industrial and Commercial Sector of the Construction industry. In 1976 the Bureau applied for, and was granted, the status of accredited bargaining agent for Employers on Mainland Nova Scotia and also for Employers in Cape Breton Island. Since 1976, contracts negotiated between the Bureau and the Construction Building Trades have been the only valid construction contracts in the Province of Nova Scotia and bind all unionized contractors working in the accredited sector. The Bureau is composed of its member companies and a small permanent staff. The Bureau is entirely funded by Employer contributions and is controlled by its Employer members. By presenting the Unions with a common front of Employers, the Bureau goes a long way to rectifying the traditional imbalance of power between a unified union and independent contractors. Moreover, by establishing a uniform contract to apply to all Employers, no individual company is given any unfair advantage or conversely any disadvantage vis a vis other Employers. All contractors stand on an equal footing with the Union and all work under the same terms and conditions. As all Employer members of the Bureau bound to any given contract have an opportunity for input into negotiation and ratification of any proposed changes to the Collective Agreement, all member companies have the opportunity to put forward their concerns and priorities. Membership in the Bureau provides the contractor with an avenue for direct and affective input into contract negotiation and guarantees a vote in deciding whether any given contract proposal is to be accepted or rejected.
