When applying ideas of sustainable construction to contractors and workers, the pricipals defined by the union also make labor sustainable. NECA/IBEW 48, the union electricians and contractors in PDX, is committed to creating the highest quailty, longest-lasting product ensuring the health of the local economy.
An important ingredient of sustainble construction is avoiding unnecessary waste, including energy and materials. The most wasteful component on a job comes from human error through costly mistakes and on the job injury. Making safety the number one priority and taking extremem pride in craftsmanship, union electricians build safely, build to last and build right the first time.
Being a union electrician isn't a job, it's a carrer - a green collar career. Half of all union workers have been with their current employer for 10 years or longer, compared with only 32 percent of nonunion workers. Employer invest more training in union employees and don't waste valuable time and resources, ensuing training and then retraining a constant revolving door of workers. Union means the best of the best. Like the buildings the partnership constructs, we're in it for the long haul.
Union labor is a green collar job. www.necaibew48.com has more information on the green efforts of this area of construction.
