What are the advantages of being an IBEW-NECA contractor?
The IBEW-NECA team provides it's clients throughout Alameda, San Joaquin, and Calaveras Counties with highly-trained, highly-qualified electrical workers. Our objective is to help our electricans and our contractors prosper by maintaining the most productive, cost-effective, quality-minded workforce available anywhere. This objective is our commitment as a business organization serving a constructive role for this industry and your business.
Scope of Services
We provide trained professional electricians to commercial, industrial, and residential electrical contractors. IBEW 595 has approximately 2000 members in Alameda, San Joaquin, and Calaveras Counties.This highly skilled workforce is available to our partnering contractors for short and long-term employment. To ensure the ongoing availability of trained, qualified workers, we also operate a nationally recognized joint apprenticeship program.
Here are some of the key benefits to becoming an union contractor:
Flexible help – Having the help you need when you need it saves you money on labor costs. IBEW members are available when you need them, for as long as you need them, even in cities where you don’t usually do business. When you are done, their employment concludes or you can move them to another job. No recruitment or advertising is necessary. No time is wasted chasing and interviewing new prospects. We can put skilled, qualified workers on your doorstep in less than 48 hours, every time.
Training – We spend more than a million dollars a year training contractor employees in trade related and safety areas. Every union employee you hire will save you the hassle and expense of providing this training for your employees.
Lower safety-related costs – Our uniform training programs stress the connection between safety and competitiveness. IBEW members put safety first every time, which means you save on comp costs, downtime costs, and absenteeism costs.
Productivity – Higher productivity means higher profits. IBEW members have to be the best trained, most highly skilled and productive craftsmen available anywhere. That means no rework. That means on-time and on-budget. That means no unskilled hands.
Supervision– How long does it take you to develop a good foreman or superintendent? How much money does it cost you along the way? One of the most common reasons companies like yours become union contractors is that they want to grow. We can provide qualified supervision. If you could add two foreman and crews next year, how much would that add to your bottom line?
No benefits administration costs – one-stop solution
Savings on prevailing wage projects with no load paid on the fringe benefits
Savings from using approved apprentices at much lower rates; training while lowering your overall costs
Lower turnover, as most of our electricians are in it for a career and not just a job
