National Labor Agreements

NECA and the IBEW maintain some national agreements whose terms apply to specific work and conditions nationwide.

There are three commonly used non-NECA 'national agreements' that members are sometimes required to work under. Although NECA is not a direct party to these agreements, we do maintain a relationship with the organizations that administer them to assist chapters and members when necessary. A two-step process is usually required in order for a contractor to work under any of these agreements: first, contractors must become signatory to the specific agreement; and then the contractor must request that the agreement be 'extended' to a particular job. The process is required for each agreement and may vary depending on the agreement. For more information on these agreements, click the appropriate link below.
