MCAA, NECA and TAUC Sign Strategic Alliance Agreement to Collaborate and Advance the Construction and Maintenance Industry

February 26, 2021

On Feb. 22, the Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA), the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA), and The Association of Union Constructors (TAUC) entered into a tri-party strategic alliance agreement to collaborate on issues impacting the construction and maintenance industry on a national and regional level.

Through this alliance, MCAA, NECA, and TAUC will conduct joint meetings and share information of mutual interest relating to environmental health and safety, industrial relations, government affairs, and innovation and technology. The three organizations will develop products and practices to jointly benefit their respective memberships, increase membership awareness of industry issues, and much more.

“MCAA, NECA and TAUC have come together in a strategic alliance to better serve our members and to strengthen our organizations in an effort to help protect the unionized construction industry,” said Timothy J. Brink, MCAA CEO.

“I am excited that NECA, TAUC and MCAA are joining together in this strategic alliance, which will align our efforts to provide the safest, most innovative work to project owners,” said David Long, NECA CEO. “Through this agreement, NECA will be well-positioned to serve its members in new ways by collaborating to serve the interests of the unionized construction industry across America.”

“Union contractors understand that our industry is always strongest when we work together,” said TAUC CEO Steve Lindauer. “TAUC’s new alliance with NECA and MCAA will strengthen our respective organizations and, most importantly, help us provide even greater service to our members moving forward.”
