NECA 2015 Labor Relations Conference

March 18, 2015 - March 20, 2015

NECA 2015 Labor Relations Conference

NECA 2015 Labor Relations Conference


New Orleans – March 18-20


The 2015 Conference was built around questions from contractors, NECA Chapter staff and NECA Committees.  This is truly a “Needs Based” conference.

Because there are so many new contractor members and chapter staff, the Conference will begin on Wednesday, March 18 at 1 pm with a discussion on  NECA’s Labor Relations Objectives.

There will be ample opportunities for attendees to ask questions and drill down on the important NECA service.

There were so many questions about legal do’s and do-not’s that Thursday will cover a wide range of issues including ACA, EEOC, ERISA, Substance Abuse, NEBF/NEAP/FMCP, Government expectations, and CW/CE issues.

Sample questions were:

•What do I need to know about hiring off the street – background checks, immigration, misconduct?

•What is the impact of legalizing drugs on local substance abuse programs?

•What do employers need to know as they transition to retirement?

•Is the NEBF/NEAP in good shape?

That night the Conference attendees and their guests are invited to a 3 hour reception/dinner at the famous K-Pauls Louisiana Kitchen.

On Friday, C. Richard Barnes will be the key note speaker.  Mr. Barnes has an unusual knowledge of our industry, the IBEW, and goal setting.

For the last 7 years, Richard has been leading the NLMCC Partnership Programs around the country. He will be sharing with us what he has found we are doing wrong and how we can improve. He is available for direct questions and dialogue about how to attract new members, how to recognize business opportunities and how to work with our partners, the IBEW.
