IBEW Local 102 began serving the construction needs of New Jersey in 1900. Our business, in the beginning, was primarily focused around the industrial city of Paterson. Over time, several locals merged to form what has become the organization we have today. We are part of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, which services the United States and Canada.
We pride ourselves in delivering to our employers and end users the best electrical craftsman available. We perform over 4 million man hours of electrical and communications work per year in the retail, commercial and industrial sectors. We are a 3,500-member temporary employment agency that services over 300 licensed New Jersey electrical contractors. We manage our own defined benefit and contribution plans along with our own self-insured healthcare program, which covers over 8,000 people.
We operate our own state-of-the-art, 15,000-square-foot training center, and all of our electricians go through mandatory re-education every three years. Our facility features the newest technology in the industry, including a fully outfitted CAD (computer aided design) and BIM (building information modeling) lab. To ensure a safe work environment for our members and customers, we require all of our electricians to be OSHA 30 trained. At Local 102, education is the foundation we build from and it is a journey that never ends. In addition to our nationally recognized apprenticeship program, we are proud to partner with NJIT and Union County College to offer our members the most diverse continuing education opportunities in the business.
This was not just a year when we celebrated our 115th Anniversary; in 2015, Local 102 became the first union organization to become a member of the New Jersey Business and Industry Association. Our focus on understanding the needs of our friends in the business community has garnered praise throughout the state. We have streamlined our work rules to further meet the needs of our contractors and customers. We are also proud to be a partner on Choose NJ as we strive to do our part in the effort to make New Jersey fertile ground for business.
We are committed to our great state and to all of the members of the business community. Our doors are always open and we welcome you to visit our facility.
