LMCC/Chicago is an innovative labor-management partnership between the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), Local 134 and the Electrical Contractors’ Association (ECA) of City of Chicago. For more than 100 years, our organizations have worked together to encourage communication and cooperation between labor and management, establish the highest standards of safety and expertise in our industry, and to promote the union electrical industry in the Chicago region.

In 2019, the LMCC rebranded as POWERING CHICAGO, which aims to  promote  the IBEW 134 and NECA Chicago workforce, as the only choice for electrical construction.  The workforce behind the signatory electrical contractors of the City of Chicago and IBEW Local 134 is among the most highly skilled, efficient, and safest in the nation.  If you want your project completed on time, within budget, and have the highest quality installation available today, choose a NECA Chicago / IBEW Local 134 signatory contractor to get the job done!
