My name is Bill McLaughlin and I am the Business Manager of Local 4, of the International Union of Operating Engineers. We are a large Union, representing nearly 5,000 members, including heavy equipment operators, apprentices, mechanics, surveyors, equipment house employees, as well as waste water

technicians and some public sector employees. We provide comprehensive health care, pensions, annuities and tax deferred savings plans. In addition, we have two modern training facilities where our members can constantly upgrade their existing skills and also acquire new ones.

Our geographical jurisdiction includes Eastern Massachusetts, Eastern New Hampshire and the entire state of Maine. We are very proud of our more than hundred plus years of history, and look forward to serving the membership of our great organization in the future.
