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


Welcome to spring! I hope all is well with you and your family during these unusual times which continue to plague us with COVID-19. Please continue to follow CDC social distancing guidelines and protocols for the safety of all. Despite our state’s vaccination rollout plans, I encourage everyone not to fall into a trap of a false sense of security. This disease still remains the same deadly virus since early last year. With respect to our monthly union meetings, I look forward to seeing everyone at Florian Hall once we are able to resume under the Massachusetts Phase 4 large gathering venue.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all great success in this upcoming construction season. It is an honor and privilege to continue serving all of you as Business Manager of this great local union. I believe our unity and iron-will spirit are the key to our success. I look forward to seeing all of you soon, and, as always, thank you for your support.
