COVID-19 response update for April 20, 2020

God bless our nurses


Brothers and Sisters,

     Linked below are two documents intended to communicate our continuing effort with our NECA partners to update our signatory contractors and Local 1, IBEW members with important information pertaining to the pandemic. The two documents include:

  1. Download the joint Labor-Management letter to signatory contractors and Local 1, IBEW members, working under NECA Agreements. 
  2. Download a summary of benefits and eligibility requirements for various programs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This document is issued separately as we expect to further amend it to address updated requirements, modified programs and new governmental regulations. Revised versions of the summary will be provided to the membership and posted to the IBEW-NECA Service Center website and Local Union No. 1, IBEW website.

We hope this effort to expand communication and summarize industry programs will be useful as we continue to face the challenges of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Thank you for your continued cooperation and efforts to keep you, your family and our industry safe, during these trying times.

Please be safe!

In Solidarity,

Frank D Jacobs
Business Manager
IBEW, Local #1
