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

Brothers and Sisters, we hope you’re enjoying the fall season! As we enter this time of year, I am pleased to share a few updates from IUOE Local 4.

Our 2022 Installation of Officers was held on September 21, and we were honored to welcome IUOE General President James T. Callahan to the event. This was a great opportunity for us to come together as a Union and hear from our national leader. Congratulations to all officers who were installed this September. Your dedication to this Union is recognized and greatly appreciated.

In September, we also hosted the 5th Annual OE Local 4 Charitable Foundation, Inc. Golf Outing. Our members, community, and generous sponsors came together to support the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. I am pleased to share that we raised over $100,000 at this special event. Thank you to all who attended or supported this year’s Golf Outing. These funds will make a great impact, and we are proud to help combat a disease that has affected so many families.

Election Day is swiftly approaching, and it is important that each and every one of us considers voting for labor-friendly candidates. Together, we can elect leaders who stand with Unions and are committed to protecting workers’ rights. For members in Massachusetts, the Fair Share Amendment will be on the ballot this November. If passed, this measure would create a 4% tax on income above $1 million annually. These funds would be devoted exclusively to transit and education. I encourage you to vote yes on this critical question.
