Local 4 represents a strong brotherhood and sisterhood of over 5,000 members, including heavy equipment operators, apprentices, mechanics, surveyors, equipment house employees, waste water technicians, and some public sector employees.  As proud Business Manager of International Union of Operating Engineers Local 4, 

I, Bill McLaughlin, lead our Union in the geographical jurisdictions of Eastern Massachusetts, Eastern New Hampshire, and the entire state of Maine. 

We provide our members with respectable wages and provide comprehensive health care, pensions, annuities, and tax deferred savings plans. Additionally, we offer cutting-edge programs for long-term investing and security.  We also offer wellness programs and seminars for physical and mental well-being, notably extensive resources for those struggling with alcohol and substance abuse.  Building a quality lifestyle for our members and their families is the focus.

Local 4’s modern training facilities in Canton and Medway, Massachusetts, provide our members with the licenses and certifications needed to constantly upgrade their existing skills and acquire new ones, with a focus on OSHA, Hazmat, NCCCO, forklift, and other continuing education programs.

Our members work hard and bring unmatched skill and dedication to their craft.  We are proud of our more than 120 years of history, and we look forward to serving the membership of our great organization well into the future.
