The International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) is a progressive Union representing some 400,000 members in virtually every town and city in Canada and the U.S.

Our members work in Canada's maintenance and service industries and in health care and education providing a vast range of public services. They provide diagnostic, therapeutic, clerical and nursing care. They operate and maintain the equipment necessary to build and enhance Canada's infrastructure. In fact, there is little you can do in today's society that will not have involved an Operating Engineer.

Canadian members of our Union enjoy a multi-level of service. They are able to access their own Local professional staff who may be assisted by the Canadian Conference, the Canadian Director and his staff or the General President and his International Staff.

Each level has fully trained representatives who all share the same philosophy – people come first!

IUOE has been representing working people across Canada since 1897. Our local union has been built by local people and continues to grow due to the commitment of our members.

Our Local is a people-first organization. Local 772 still believes in the grass roots principles, which have supported the growth of trade unionism in this country since the 1800s.

The ideas of caring about people and their problems have been renewed with a fresh vigour within the Operating Engineers. We believe in servicing our members.
