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.
