I am not aware of anywhere where the IBEW would the the carpenters do our work. I can't find a ruling on this in the publication of the Building and Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO. This department has at ability to resolve such jurisdictional disputes between the various unions.will an electrician be able to drill holes in the studs? I have heard some places the union rules require such work be done by members of the carpenters union.
It is just a design requirement that they may or may not be willing to waive. If you have not done this before, you will either get the job and lose your butt, or you won't get the job because your price is too high. For a contractor that does this type of work all the time, the cost is about 15% higher than MC. For a contractor that does not normally do that type of work the cost will be at least 50% higher than MC.Maybe I am reading the Architects response wrong. He said to bid it all in EMT
as asked for on the plans. This is down state in Ill. out of Chicago area. Do you think
I am reading to much in this.?
Labor units (which are published) are applied to material to arrive at total labor hours. Has nothing to do with the labor rate applied to thema labor unit all comes down productivity dude. you got to have some kind of bench mark to set the unit to. unions have wage agreements.
