Mark L. Thomas

The Electrical Contractors’ Association of City of Chicago (ECA) is a construction trade association that provides business and labor relations services to nearly 700 electrical contractors in Cook County, Illinois.  ECA is also known as the Chicago and Cook County Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA).  We work with our industry partner, Local Union #134 IBEW, to negotiate and administer labor agreements, coordinate apprentice and journeyman-level training, as well as promote the industry on behalf of these employers.  Since 1903, ECA has provided educational opportunities and business services to not only to assist the electrical contractor by improving the business climate and bringing increased profitability but to enrich future generations. ECA and IBEW Local 134 work hand in hand to provide a highly skilled, efficient, and safe workforce for the City of Chicago and Cook County, Illinois.
