The IBEW and NECA are proud of providing the best trained and best educated electricians in the industry. That is why, during our current contract negotiations we have decided to make education mandatory for all our members.


Effective June 3, 2019,

all CW/CE will be required to complete classes

in order to be eligible for a pay rate increase

  • Thursday – May 16, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
