The pharmaceutical industry recognizes that the most highly skilled workers are needed to construct and maintain the highest quality research and manufacturing facilities. That is why they rely on North America’s Building Trades Unions to build and retrofit their facilities – they know they can depend on them to do the job on time, on budget and right the first time.
America’s Building Trades Unions spend more than $1 billion training their members each year. With state-of-the-art training facilities all over the country, the building trades are ready to meet the needs of today and the challenges of tomorrow. They lay the foundation that supports the biopharmaceutical industry’s quest to discover groundbreaking treatments and cures for a healthy America.
trans·par·en·cy – Legislation requiring disclosure of proprietary and trade secret information, such as specific pricing, marketing and research and development information of biopharmaceuticals.
PILMA warns there are unintended consequences with this type of legislation, including chilling of innovation and capital construction projects with no clear benefits to patients.
im·por·ta·tion – Legislation that would allow the bringing of biopharmaceuticals from other counties into the U.S.
PILMA believes that there is no way to guarantee the safety and ingredients of imported medicines, further, this practices will erode U.S. jobs in the biopharmaceutical industry.
