Eddie Bernacchi and the entire Politico Group team advocates for NECA Contractors at the State Capitol in Sacramento; lobbying for legislation that protects and supports the union electrical industry. Equally important is the work done to oppose legislation that would be detrimental to our members and the industry as a whole. With that, Mr. Bernacchi concluded a very successful year working on behalf of NECA members.
NECA’s biggest win came in the form of extending the 5% retention cap on public works projects. That policy is something we have fought hard for and extending it for another 5 years was a priority. We also brought home victories in the areas of protecting and expanding the prevailing wage and improving the skilled and trained workforce requirements as we expand the footprint of that policy. Please take the time to review the attached document from Mr. Bernacchi.
