National Joint Council for the Engineering Construction Industry

The National Joint Council for the Engineering Construction Industry (NJC) is a partnership between trade unions and employers. It reviews and administers the National Agreement for the Engineering Construction Industry – sometimes referred to as the ‘Blue Book’, or the NAECI. The NJC’s objectivity, authority and independence foster cohesive working relationships. The same qualities equip it to play a constructive role as the industry meets the challenges of the future.

The partnership promotes improvements in working practice and culture. The creation of new, inclusive alliances is vital to the attainment of greater efficiency. By extending the scope and effectiveness of partnership within the industry, the NJC seeks to secure long-term prosperity for clients, contractors and workforce alike.

A thriving UK engineering construction industry largely depends on client competitiveness. The NJC is firmly focused on assisting contractors and trade unions in their drive towards providing clients with a unified, cohesive and cost-effective service. Able to prevent, or rapidly resolve, workplace problems on behalf of clients, the NJC can also assist the process of change undertaken by clients to achieve continuous improvement in quality, reliability, safety and efficiency.
