Building on Common Ground
ELEC is a labor-employer trust that brings Local 825 Operating Engineers together with participating employers to secure building projects, create jobs, maintain a credentialed work force and promote the benefits of union labor.
ELEC's role is to distinguish the benefits of union construction and promote its advantages, which translate into real value for contractors, building owners and developers.
We offer the highest level of training opportunities, experience, collaboration, job safety, productivity and efficiency. These advantages ensure that a project will be completed on time, on budget and without fear of overruns or re-work at a later date.
ELEC's mission is to foster collaboration between Local 825 and its participating employers to win construction projects and create jobs. Building on common ground, the partners promote economic interests of mutual benefit, while nurturing a highly skilled, credentialed workforce.

- Trained -- Local 825 maintains training facilities in New York and New Jersey, allowing members to upgrade their skills on the latest equipment and technology. Members have access to training year-round on virtually every topic that heavy equipment operators need to stay on the cutting edge.
- Experienced -- Our seasoned instructors provide everything from heavy equipment operator training, training in emergency response, hazardous waste operations and OSHA requirements to keep contractors supplied year-round with safe, skilled and efficient operators.
- Credentialed -- We help members maintain costly professional licenses and security clearances, many of which have come about since 911. These include clearances such as TWIC, SWAC and the Delaware Valley Safety Card, also known as the South Jersey Chemical Card and heavy equipment certifications, such as CCO and other licenses in New York and New Jersey.
