    (i kind of hope they do)
    Is there an inspector that could get involved?

    It doesn't make any sense. If he can pull a phase, he can pull a neutral as well. I wouldn't sit back and let him do it that way.

    No way I would do this. He's an EE not a diety. Tell him no, or tell his boss or somebody what is going on.

    OP say the EE wants two hots to share a single neutral. To do so, it must be a multiwire branch circuit.... right?
    I'll never get there. No matter where I go, I'm always here.

    But 2 hots from different panels sharing a neutral? Hmmm!

    Not permitted. That's why I posted 210.4 in its entirety above.

    If he used the same phase, the neutral current could double.

    I want to see the handle tie he uses.
