IBEW has been providing skilled electrical workers to NECA contractors for over 50 years
The IBEW Local 159 has been active for 108 years. NECA was formed in the 1950s. Since these two organizations have the same goals they have formed a partnership to get their message out. IBEW has been providing skilled electrical workers to NECA contractors for over 50 years. These skilled electricians have 5 years of training to become Inside Journeymen. It is important for the public to be aware that electrical jobs done poorly directly affect the safety of the structure/building. This is not a good area to cut corners. Electrical work needs to be done right the first time, primarily for your safety, secondly because to re-do poorly executed electrical work at a late date is not only difficult but also very costly. IBEW / NECA encourage you to use a NECA contractor to complete all your electrical work. This insures a trained skilled IBEW electrician will show up on the job site and perform the work with the highest quality workmanship.
