IUOE Local 877 represents stationary engineers and maintenance workers throughout Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont. Local 877 received its charter after the merger of several other locals from the International Union of Operating Engineers as a stationary Local with jurisdiction for all of New England.
Many of our members work as licensed skilled tradesmen in power plants, trash to energy facilities, hospitals, commercial buildings, in the public sector, along with life science research facilities, and educational institutions. We have over 1,200 members with over sixty (60) different labor agreements.
Our staff organizes new members, negotiates contracts, and represents members in all matters regarding their working conditions. We also provide members with representation in cases of discipline or when a member or members believe their employer has violated provisions of their contract.
Local 877 has union stewards at all our work sites. These stewards are the eyes and ears of the Local. They are the conduit of information both for the members and for the Local staff.
To best serve our membership we must have a constant focus on growth. We are always looking for new organizing opportunities. Please contact the Local or let your steward know of any potential organizing opportunities.
