A cooperative trust that builds opportunities
ELEC is a labor-management organization that promotes economic development, investments in infrastructure and construction projects throughout New Jersey and in five counties of New York State: Rockland, Orange, Ulster, Sullivan and Delaware.
As a collaborative trust, helping to provide contracts for our builders also provides meaningful job opportunities for Local 825 Operating Engineers.
Access to highly skilled and fully credentialed Operating Engineers
By employing operating engineers from Local 825, construction contractors are qualified to bid on massive public infrastructure contracts, industrial jobs, and all facets of public and private development.
And the benefits don’t end there.
You'll benefit from a collective bargaining agreement, which establishes clearly defined job classifications and exact wage rates and a uniform benefits program.
You'll save on administrative costs because of our cost-effective health insurance and retirement benefits.
Prevailing wage keeps the field level. As you compete for contracts calling for prevailing wage, you can rest assured that you won't be undercut by a competitor who tries to lower costs by paying workers substandard wages and benefits. Your labor costs will be the same, allowing you to focus on your strengths in preparing a winning bid.
