Unions exist because there’s power in numbers, and Local 4 is one of the most powerful voices for heavy equipment operators, mechanics, surveyors, and service technicians in the country.
Local 4 members are in demand because of our training and skills. When we come together and collectively bargain, we’re able to win industry-leading wages and benefits. Through our union, we also have a voice on the job, so we can engage constructively with employers to address concerns.
A strong labor movement is the key to a strong middle class. With our Brothers and Sisters in the labor movement, we’ve fought and won a minimum wage, industry safety standards, 8-hour workdays, weekends, paid overtime, increased market share, and much more.
