IUOE Local 877 represents stationary engineers and maintenance workers throughout Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont. 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. Together, we’re over 1,200 members strong with over 80 different labor agreements.
With the International originating in 1896 and with direct roots back to 1965, Local 877 received its charter after the merger of several other locals from the International Union of Operating Engineers. As a Local, 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. Stewards are the eyes and ears of the Local and serve as a conduit between our members and the Local staff.
We are always looking for new organizing opportunities to expand and support our membership. Please contact the Local or let your steward know of any potential organizing opportunities.
