NECA Releases Manual of Labor Units

The 2019-2020 editions of the NECA Manual of Labor Units (MLU) and Tool and Equipment Rental Schedule are now available for purchase in the NECA Store.

For nearly 100 years, the NECA MLU has provided users with an experience-based reference to estimating the required electrical construction labor for installing typical electrical and communications systems. The 2019-2020 edition provides units for LED fixtures and 35kv cable, and a new keyword index to provide a better user experience when locating labor units. Learn more at

The NECA Tool and Equipment Rental Schedule helps electrical contractors ensure the tool and equipment expenses are included as direct job expenses, not overhead, and are designed to be used for both internal accounting and estimating. The 2019-2020 edition includes an expanded catalogue of safety resources, instruments and test equipment. Learn more at
