I'm curious to know what city and state you guys have seen companies trading manpower? Looking to bid work out of state and thought it might be a way to cut down on per diem and labor costs from a temp agency.

This conversation is so ignorant.
Why try to reinvent what as been around since the late 1800s.
Land your job, call the union hall, put in a call for however many electricians you need, finish your job, count your money, go home.

What would happen if a local had an agreement with a contractor to loan “loan him guys” on an as needed basis, but required other contractors to be signatory contractors in order to hire out of the hall? It would probably loose signatory contractors? It would also open them up to a liability in their contract with the signatory contractors. I’m sure every local has a “Most Favored Nation” clause.

It also stops the local from letting one contractor have higher apprentice ratios, or let one contractor run a job at “B” rate, and make other contractors only use “A” rate.


Collective Bargaining Agreement: Most Favored Nation Clause
by Practical Law Labor & Employment

Maintained • USA (National/Federal)
A Standard Clause to be included in a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) to allow an employer to obtain from a union the best economic terms for labor among all of the employers that have a collective bargaining relationship with the union within a specified industry or region. If the union subsequently enters into a CBA with a different employer in the identified industry or region that provides for lower-cost wages or benefits, an employer that has negotiated a most favored nation clause (MFN) can demand that its CBA be modified to adopt those more favorable wages and benefits. This Standard Clause is based on the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), but may be used by private sector employers subject to the Railway Labor Act (RLA) or public sector employers. This Standard Clause has integrated drafting notes with important explanations and negotiating tips.

Your not trading your borrowing. New guy in town wants to borrow labor, for a local job. That should go over well with the established contractors. Stick to the hall or temp agency. And be prepared for less than you think you should get. If a person is any good right now they are not available.
