At the end of 2019, the NJC agreed on a recommendation of the Working Group on the Extension of NAECI 3.1(b) regarding the efficient use of working time. The PDF version of naECI 2019-2020 has been updated to include this change and is available for download in v3. An NJC Guidance note that complements this new and modified section is available here for download. NaECI was established in 1981 as a working agreement for the entire mechanical engineering sector. Since then, a large number of new projects have been successfully carried out with NAECI. NAECI is not content with new construction, however, as customers at a number of large industrial facilities support the use of NAECI for their long-term repair and maintenance work, as well as for breakdowns, rotations and events. The National Agreement for the Engineering and Construction Industry 2019-2020 with more than 140 pages of relevant information for all those working in the sector: NAECI is a comprehensive and prescriptive agreement. Its strength lies in the fact that it creates a level playing field for wages, reduces exploited differences and reduces the brain drain and poaching. Nationally agreed rates of pay mean that contractors do not apply for employment on the basis of the remission of work quotas, but on the basis of the quality of the skills within their organisation, namely their engineering, design, acquisition, management and monitoring and, of course, their craft skills. The NAECI is a working agreement at the national level, derived from the collective bargaining process between the parties. Together, the signatory parties form the National Joint Council (NJC), which oversees the work of naECI. The NJC Secretariat coordinates negotiations between the parties to review rates of pay and other aspects of the agreement. www.njceci.org.uk/download/naeci-2019-2020-v3 Following a review of the NAECI in 2018, a two-year agreement was successfully concluded and NJC Communicates 13 (18) contains full details on the new provisions and tariff and certification increases for the period 2019-2020.

Latest GMB updates for members working in the engineering and construction industry The membership structure and creation of the NJCECI provide the basis for a single Table Agreement and create the standardization power for good practices. The continuous improvement of standards has had a positive impact on the safety and well-being of workers. and it continues to have a great influence on the performance of the mechanical engineering industry. NAECI 2019 – 2020 brochures will be published in Grade 2, unless first class is specifically requested. The NAECI has been around for almost 40 years and details of the 2019 – 2020 edition are available below. Naeci has been around since 1981. While this is a proven agreement, it is by no means a static document. It has constantly evolved to answer certain questions or changes in the market. Recent examples of the evolution of the NAECI are: the introduction of the conditional death benefit, which has eliminated the disruptive practice of sympathy breakdowns; and the introduction of NAECI “Basic”, which allows for easier touch application of the agreement with less infrastructure, which could be more attractive to customers with small new construction projects. Members participating in NAECI work can access labour and labour law advice through the association`s core team. .
