Welcome to the Website of IUOE Local 98
A Unique Union
We are one of two hoisting and portable locals in the State of Massachusetts and New Hampshire, and the only hoisting and portable union in the state of Vermont.
We also have a very aggressive organizing program in place. This assures a high standard of living to our members and offers the same opportunity to other workers who perform operating engineer type work in our jurisdiction for their current employers.
If you are interested in joining Local 98 please contact our office at 413-998-3230.
OUT OF WORK?
If you are out of work, it is your responsibility to call the Union Hall to put your name on the “Out of Work List”. This will enhance your opportunity for work during the winter months. If you are working, please call the Union Hall and have your name taken off the “Out of Work List”. This will help to keep a more accurate list of who is available for work.
Crane Operator Certification Training
We encourage all members to become NCCCO and or OECP certified. This will be a great opportunity to enhance your marketability and provide work year round. Crane operator certification is required by November 10, 2018.
