More than 5,000 members of the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) Local 4 are building our communities across the New England region. We’re proud to maintain our union’s mission of fostering safe workplaces, fighting for workers’ rights, and taking action to expand diversity, equity, and inclusion in the trades.
As the leading heavy equipment organization, Operating Engineers Local 4 prides itself on delivering world-class results for over 125 years. Local 4 heavy equipment operators, mechanics, surveyors, equipment house employees, and wastewater technicians are experts in their field, setting the standard for high-quality construction throughout Eastern Massachusetts, Eastern New Hampshire, and the state of Maine. We’re proud to consistently get the job done right, on time, and on budget.
Local 4’s distinction begins with the extensive apprenticeship and training opportunities available at our facilities in Canton and Medway, Massachusetts. Members receive state-of-the-art training, licenses, and certifications needed to upskill and advance their careers. We also encourage members to take advantage of the continuing education programs we provide, including OSHA, Hazmat, NCCCO, forklift, and more.
Through thoughtful and intentional collaboration with our partners, we uphold industry-leading wages, work conditions, and benefits for all. These benefits ensure our members have access to great healthcare, retirement, and a pension plan.
Local 4 members and contractors are the backbone of this great Union. We’re grateful for their contributions and commitment to helping the organization grow, fostering community, and becoming fraternally united.
