In the construction trades...

It PAY$ to be UNION 

The median weekly earnings for construction workers in the U.S. last year was $1,254 for union members and just $920 for non-union workers, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, based on 2020 data.

It especially pays if you're a UNION Operating Engineer!  Members of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 302 are earning
$72.20 to $79.10 total package per hour in Washington state, $60.18 to $69.64 total package per hour in Alaska, and $49.96 to $55.86 total package per hour in Idaho.  This Total Package includes:

  • Best pension in the business

  • Family health, dental and vision

Other Benefits that you may enjoy include:

  • Time-and-a-half after 8 hours and on Saturdays

  • Regular wage and benefit increases

You’re doing the work.  Make sure you get paid! 

Heavy construction equipment operators just like you are making more money, getting better benefits, and earning their retirement security. All because they have a union contract!

You owe it to yourself -- and to your family -- to make sure you are getting the wages, benefits and respect you deserve.  Forget about whatever you’ve heard or been told about why you shouldn’t join a union.  Call and get the facts, and decide for yourself!
