ECA statement on HVCA withdrawal of BESNA

‘The Electrical Contractors’ Association (ECA) welcomes the news that the HVCA has terminated its plans to introduce the Building Engineering Services National Agreement (BESNA). Balfour Beatty Engineering Services (BBES) and NG Bailey have also previously confirmed they intend to withdraw from the agreement.

‘This is an important step forward for the industry. The Building Engineering Services sector can only benefit from the support of trade associations and major contractors such as BBES and NG Bailey, in developing any future agreement that is representative of all parties. The door was always open and we are glad that BBES, NG Bailey and HVCA have decided to abandon the BESNA proposal and come back to the table to find a truly collaborative agreement that serves the whole industry.

‘We urge the remaining BESNA contractors to abandon plans to introduce BESNA and come back to the table to negotiate along with their fellow employers in the Building Engineering Services sector. This is the only decision that will make sense for our industry if we are to deliver safe and responsible change for the sector as a whole, which ECA, along with our colleagues from the other trade associations and Unite, is committed to achieving.’
