Over 50 guests attended an event entitled "The Future of the Electrical Industry" held last week at the Electrical Industry Training Center in Long Island City. Guests included representatives of Local Union #3, the Joint Industry Board, several signatory contractors, and representatives of several general contractors, developers, and contractor associations.
The program included a tour of the state-of-the-art Electrical Industry’s Long Island City Training Center, a presentation of the highlights of the 2019 Collective Bargaining Agreement between Local Union #3, I.B.E.W. and NECA affiliated contractors, and an industry roundtable lunch to discuss the competitive market recovery tools negotiated in the agreement. Critical discussions were held between NYC-area GC's, construction managers and developers with Local #3 electrical contractors and union representatives to better understand the newly agreed upon CBA.
