JIB - The Joint Industry Board
The history of the JIB (Joint Industry Board) arose from specific needs of the industry to aid relationships between employers and workers. The Electrical Contracting Industry is made up of several private firms. These companies range in size from sole proprietorships to companies with more than 1,000 workers. These workers perform a number of tasks that range from small jobs performed in private residences to the work involved in large, commercial construction projects.
During the 1950s and 1960s, the Union and the Employers' Association were often at odds. Labor disputes (strikes and lock-outs) were not uncommon.
The two sides determined that they needed to work together if the industry was going to survive. The Joint Industry Board was brought in as a replacement for the National and Area Joint Industrial Councils.
The Purpose of JIB
JIB exists to govern the relationship between employers and employees who work in the electrical contracting industry. It also exists to provide benefits for electrical workers, control wages and benefits paid to those employed in the industry, and to improve the industry in general terms.
Grading Definitions and JIB
JIB also lists detailed job descriptions for the following types of jobs:
