UNEMPLOYMENT INFORMATION
We just received confirmation that the Unemployment Office is not requiring union verification at all during this crisis. The "union verification" has been turned "off" due to the work search waiver in response to COVID-19.


Any members that will be filing please use the mass layoff code 2000180. Members filing claims with this code should not receive a request for union verification during processing. For members that did not use the code to file, you should ignore the request for union verification. 

For this reason we no longer need you to call us with your confirmation number, confirmation code or claimant id number.

Please be patient. The State of Ohio is processing approximately 200,000 unemployment claims.

The IBEW may make this Agreement available to other employers in the construction industry that have not signed a Letter of Assent to be bound to a construction agreement between any chapter of NECA and any local union the IBEW.

This Agreement shall take effect March 16, 2020 and shall remain in effect until terminated as provided herein. The Parties shall meet via teleconference every 30 days to evaluate this Agreement and determine its continued utility. The Parties may mutually terminate the Agreement immediately, and either party may unilaterally terminate this Agreement by Providing at least a 90 day written notification to the other party.

The term chapter, as hereinafter used, shall mean the applicable chapter of NECA.

The term local union, as hereinafter used, shall mean an IBEW Local Union.

The term employer, as hereinafter used, shall mean the individual firm that has signed a Letter of Assent to a construction agreement between any chapter of NECA and any local union of the IBEW or agreement between NECA and the IBEW, or if this Agreement is made available to a contractor that has not signed a Letter of Assent, but is otherwise signatory to a construction agreement with a local union of the IBEW, employer shall also mean such contractor.

This Agreement (NDERA) shall supersede any conflicting provisions in a construction agreement between any chapter of NECA and any local union of the IBEW, except that it shall not supersede any locally negotiated MOU or agreement between a chapter of NECA and an IBEW local union addressing the impact of coronavirus.

The term employee, as hereinafter used, shall mean an individual performing work pursuant to the terms of a collective bargaining agreement between any chapter of NECA and any local union of the IBEW or agreement between NECA and the IBEW, or pursuant to a collective bargaining agreement between a contractor that has not signed a Letter of Assent, but is otherwise signatory to a construction agreement with a local union of the IBEW and has adopted this Agreement.

The term coronavirus shall mean coronavirus disease COVID-19.

During the period of this Agreement, the following conditions exist:
           Reports having contact with another person(s) who is reasonably believed to have contracted coronavirus or a similar disease
           Has recently returned from a High-Risk Country as defined by the Center of Disease Control (CDC); or
           Presents symptoms associated with the coronavirus or similar disease as defined by the CDC

The employer shall be permitted to remove the employee from the jobsite and require the employee to obtain a doctor's release certifying that the employee is able to return to work. If an employee is confirmed to have coronavirus or similar disease, the employer shall notify all employees who were believed to be in contact with this individual and take actions consistent with appropriate protocols to prevent the further spread of the disease.
If an Employee reasonably believes another employee(s) has met one or more of the above conditions, the employee shall report such to the employer as soon as reasonably possible. The emplolyer shall then follow all appropriate guidance and protocols to ensure a safe jobsite.

There shall be no adverse action taken against an employee who refuses to be present at the jobsite so long as the employee genuinely believes there is imminent danger and a reasonable person would agree there is a real danger of contracting coronavirus at the jobsite, nor shall any adverse action be taken against an employee who has been quarantined, or advised to self-quarantine, due to possible exposure to coronavirus.

In the event access to a jobsite is restricted or denied by the employer or other appropriate public or private authority in response to the conronavirus or similar disease, the employer shall be permitted to temporarily furlough the employees assigned to this jobsite. The employer shall not contest any unemployment claims filed by employees, temporarily furloughed as a result of a restricted or closed jobsite due to the coronavirus or similar disease, or who have refused to be present at the jobsite out of a genuine belief that being present would place them in imminent danger of contracting coronavirus, or who have been quarantined, or advised to self-quarantine, due to possible exposure to coronavirus. Such employees shall be permitted to return to their original positions with their employer upon the resumption of work on the jobsite, and/or their ability to return, without the need of the referral process, and irrespective of whether such employees have signed their local union's out-of-work list.

This threat is ongoing and must be continually monitored by the Parties who agree to discuss any new legislation or regulation related to the coronavirus or similar disease that may impact this Agreement

Signed - David Long - NECA and Lonnie R. Stephenson, International President, March 16, 2020.
