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 the summer season now upon us and the good weather finally here, I hope you and your families are well and enjoying this great time of the year. I am confident that our work will continue to grow and that we’ll have ample opportunities for the Operating Engineers throughout the remainder of 2021.

Because the states of Massachusetts, Maine and New Hampshire have recently lifted all COVID-19 restrictions, Local 4 is now able to return to our regular order of business after 16 months of State regulations and CDC best-practice protocols. I look forward to seeing you all at our monthly Body Meetings.

Congratulations to the graduating class of 2021 Local 4 Apprenticeship and Training Program. Your hard work and dedication over the last four years in our highly recognized program will surely set the stage for a prosperous career in Local 4. Great job to all 22 graduates!

In solidarity, as always, thank you for your continued support.
