Lineman Central data is provided from a combination of local union information submissions, industry reports, surveys, and other publicly available data. This resource is intended to help local unions provide basic information to linemen and we do not claim 100% annual accuracy. Lineman Central is not a union itself and this tool serves to connect resources.
