The NECA Advantage

IBEW and NECA partnership

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) has a longstanding relationship with the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA). NECA contractors are held to rigorous standards set forth to ensure the quality of work performed is of the highest quality. For this reason, NECA contractors employ highly skilled, highly trained electricians who have gone through the rigorous IBEW Local 163 registered apprenticeship program.
These contractors are proud to employ the next generation of construction electricians as they complete their apprenticeship program and continue to work towards their journeymen card. Apprentices work for NECA contractors alongside their journeymen counterparts, ensuring they learn from those with years of experience. IBEW Local 163 contractors are proudly affiliated with the Penn-Del-Jersey Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association.

High Standards for Productivity

A strong commitment to labor-management cooperation is at the heart of the relationship between IBEW Local 163 and our affiliated Pennsylvania Energy and Electrical Contractors. Our partnerships translate into efficient projects and increased customer energy savings, along with safe, efficient workplaces for Reading and our surrounding counties. As part of the IBEW, we provide an expandable workforce by drawing on our own network of skilled electrical trades people across the country.

NECA Standards Work for You

This infrastructure must be safe, secure and productive.
