The Electrical Contractors’ Association of City of Chicago (ECA) held its April Membership meeting at Gene & Georgetti’s Restaurant in Rosemont, Illinois.   The main speaker was Mr. Don Finn, Local Union #134 IBEW Business Manager.  Each discussed industry concerns, including the following:

·        The recent Ford project could not have been properly manned without the combined efforts / resources of Local Union #134 IBEW and the union electrical contractors represented by the Electrical Contractors’ Association of City of Chicago (ECA).

·        The Ford project utilized 844 JWs, Apprentices and Trainees through 24 contractors over 3,000 hours; Safety, job completion and manpower issues were coordinated over an 18-month period.

·        Mr. Finn and representatives of Local Union #134 IBEW, as well as ECA representative(s) are to work together to gather information concerning worker’s needs through work forums and by visiting job sites.

·        The “Powering Chicago” website is active, the “Ours to Protect” web portal is open, the recent White Sox billboard has met with positive reviews, advertising and promotional efforts are increasing.

·        The Chicagoland Union Electrical Industry must continue to promote solar work in the area and throughout the state.

·        The volume of residential solar is only going to increase; the industry must be prepared to meet the demand and ensure that the photovoltaic arena is covered by union electricians and union electrical contractors. 

At the conclusion of the question and answer session, Business Manager Finn, the representatives of Local #134 IBEW, and Mr. Robert Hattier were met with a round of applause.
