Contractor Membership

Shared Man Program

Purpose

When a contractor has a surplus of good men he would like to keep when his work is slow, he can offer them to other contractors in the program on a shared basis. Notification can be made through the IEC office or directly to the contractor(s) in the program.

Benefits

The Home Firm maintains its nucleus of personnel without having to pay employees to sit at home. The Host Firm is able to find competent temporary help. The electrician does not lose time during a slow cycle at his Home Firm and the IEC members participating in the program will be able to maintain a more qualified work force.

  2. Home Firm and the Host Firm must communicate before the sixty days are up to either terminate the loan or mutually agree to extend it.
