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


With this wonderful holiday season now upon us, I hope you, your family, and your friends are in good health. As we enter into 2022, I am pleased to announce that our projections for work opportunities in the construction industry are plentiful once again. 
Despite the many obstacles that the pandemic has thrown in our path, I am thrilled to report that the State of our Union is strong. The Union has $25 million in total assets and investments at this time, which ensures that we are very well-positioned to continue organizing, fighting for market share, supporting labor-friendly candidates, lobbying for our elected representatives, and working hard to make sure that our members are employed and protected on the job.  
Similarly, the Funds are flourishing. After reviewing the amount of hours each of you put into your work in the field, Local 4 Funds reports that the numbers are not only back to pre-pandemic levels, but are likely to surpass it. There is a lot of work forecasted for 2022, and with the addition of recently-signed employers, the continued organization of new sectors of work for the operating engineers, and the federal infrastructure bill, hours received by the Funds should continue to grow in the years to come.
Our Apprenticeship Program is also in great standing with roughly $5.9 million in total cash and investments. Investing in skilled journeymen and journeywomen through apprenticeship training is key to the future of this great local union.  
In solidarity, and as always, thank you for your continued support.
