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.

As you browse through our web site you will see that we provide upgrade training to our members as well as a quality apprenticeship program for new members.

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.
