A NEBF Participation Agreement allows a contributing employer the ability to make NEBF contributions on behalf of its non-bargaining unit employees. A non-bargaining unit employee is not part of the bargaining unit or is not performing work that is covered by the CBA which contains the NEBF Standard Contract Language.
There are two types of Participation Agreements.
The first is an "All" Participation Agreement. An "All" Agreement covers each and every employee not covered by the collective bargaining agreement – this includes all full-time and part-time employees.
An "Alumni" Agreement covers each and every employee who has earned at least one service credit under an IBEW collective bargaining agreement.
