Ibew Nora Agreement

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) and the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) have recently come to a new agreement named IBEW-NORA. This new agreement is designed to benefit both the electrical contractors and the electricians who work for them.

IBEW-NORA stands for National Organizing and Recognition Agreement, and it has several key components. One of the primary goals of the agreement is to create a standard for electrical contractors that will ensure fair wages, benefits, and working conditions for their employees. This is achieved through the establishment of a national wage scale, which takes into account the cost of living in different regions of the country.

Another important component of the IBEW-NORA agreement is the establishment of a national training program. This program is designed to provide comprehensive training for electricians, ensuring that they are up-to-date on the latest industry standards and technologies. The training program is also intended to promote safety and professionalism on job sites.

The IBEW-NORA agreement also includes provisions for dispute resolution and grievance procedures. These provisions ensure that any disputes or grievances between contractors and electricians are resolved fairly and quickly. This helps to maintain a productive and harmonious working relationship between contractors and their skilled workforce.

Overall, the IBEW-NORA agreement represents a significant step forward for the electrical industry. By establishing a national standard for wages, benefits, and training, this agreement will help to ensure that electrical contractors are able to attract and retain the best talent in the industry. It will also help to promote safety, professionalism, and productivity on job sites, which will benefit both contractors and their clients.

If you are an electrical contractor or an electrician, it is important to familiarize yourself with the details of this new agreement. By doing so, you can ensure that you are taking advantage of all the benefits it offers, and that you are able to compete effectively in today’s competitive and rapidly changing electrical industry.
