Welcome Message from Business Manager Bill McLaughlin

Across New England, more than 5,000 members of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 4 are building communities, promoting safe workplaces, taking advantage of state-of-the-art training, and advocating economic opportunity for all.

Operating Engineers Local 4 has a long history of delivering world-class results. For over 120 years, we’ve been setting the standard for high-quality construction throughout Eastern Massachusetts, Eastern New Hampshire, and the state of Maine. Whether you need heavy equipment operators, mechanics, surveyors, equipment house employees, or wastewater technicians, you can count on us to get the job done right, on time, and on budget.

Our excellence starts with the apprenticeship and training opportunities we provide at our facilities in Canton and Medway, Mass. Members receive training, licenses, and certifications needed to upgrade existing skills and acquire new ones throughout their careers. We focus on OSHA, Hazmat, NCCCO, forklift, and other continuing education programs. And in working with our partners, we’re ensuring industry-leading wages and benefits for all.

If you’re a Local 4 member or contractor, thanks for your work in helping grow and strengthen our union. If you are not yet affiliated with Local 4, here’s a place where you can learn more about our dynamic work and how to get involved.

In Solidarity,

Business Manager
International Union of Operating Engineers Local 4


Hello Everyone! I hope you and your family are in good health and spirit throughout the winter season — especially during these uncertain times. The global pandemic that has plagued the world has shed light on the fact that we should never take family, friends, and loved ones for granted. Please take the opportunity to exercise social distancing and other COVID-19 best practices for a safe well-being. As we close out this year and enter into 2021, I am optimistic that the work outlook will be steady for our local union and we will continue to practice COVID-19 protocol to keep our membership safe.
