You can also participate at the national level in Forums with non-competing groups of contractors from different regions to discuss and share best practices.

IEC of Oregon has been the voice of the merit shop for over forty years. We advocate for the non-union shop on a local, state, and national level, weighing in on any new legislative or regulatory measures that may impact our members.  This includes working with the Department of Labor to make sure that any apprenticeship rules and standards apply fairly to merit shop contractors.  We take a stand against anti-competitive project labor agreements that halt fair, competitive bidding on public projects. We fight to make sure that these regulations are unbiased, safe and do not place unnecessary burden on contractors. To learn more, CLICK HERE.

Our national Codes and Standards Committee has a direct impact on shaping the standards for the electrical industry. IEC National has a representative that sits on every code panel.  We have two members that sit on each of the nineteen panels of the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) 70 National Electrical Code (NEC). In addition, we work closely with the International Association of Electrical Inspectors and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association to make sure there is a voice advocating for the industry and the merit shop.

When you join IEC of Oregon, you’re supporting the merit-shop business and the continued success of the electrical industry.
