COVID-19 Vaccination News
As of March 29, 2021 Illinois has entered into Phase 1C for COVID-19 vaccination eligibility. Phase 1C includes Construction Trade Workers in the expanded eligibility list. This expansion opens eligibility to Local 117 members. Local 117 members are encouraged to get the vaccine to help keep our job sites, members, and their families safe.
In response to the release of the National Disease Emergency Response Agreement (NDERA) on Monday March 16 that was designed to address the current national public health emergency and to provide guidance for our industry, we have received a number of questions.
The attached NDERA Questions and Answers has been written to address the questions we have received from the field to date and the guidance is intended to answer as many of those questions as possible. These questions and answers are subject to being revised by NECA and the IBEW as often as necessary.
The questions and answers have been vetted and reviewed by both IBEW and NECA Leadership including IBEW International President Lonnie Stephenson, IBEW International Secretary Treasurer Kenny Cooper, NECA President Larry Beltramo and NECA CEO David Long. Additionally, these Questions and Answers have also received legal review from the legal counsels of both organizations.
To review these questions and answers please use the following link.
