Brothers and Sisters,
I’m happy to announce that starting in September, we will be able to resume our monthly, in person Union Meetings. Our September meeting in Pittsburgh will be on Wednesday, September 8.
We will start the meeting at 4:30 pm, which is an hour earlier than our usual start time of 5:30 pm.
We are doing this because our Constitution requires us to read all monthly financial reports and monthly executive board minutes, during the months we were unable to meet.
At the conclusion of the September meeting, we will have food and beverages for our members in attendance.
I look forward to seeing you on September 8.

The International Union of Operating Engineers, Local 95
is a progressive trade union that represents the Stationary
Operating Engineers and skilled trades, as well as certain
municipal and clerical employees. The goal of union membership
is to ensure fair and adequate working conditions for those
members we represent. We believe in the rights of workers to
expect a fair day's pay for a day's work. We believe that union
members are individuals who realize that the privilege of
membership is not to be taken for granted, but requires a
continued commitment by all of us to maintain and improve
our skills and our way of life. We believe that skilled labor is
much more efficient and also provides for a safer work environment on any and every job site.
The bipartisan infrastructure deal would be the single largest investment in infrastructure since the construction of the interstate highway system. It will provide a down payment on a world-class infrastructure system that is safer and more reliable. It will create tens of thousands of jobs for Operating Engineers and help lift the economy out of the pandemic recession.
The campaign is in full swing to enact the bipartisan infrastructure deal. And we need to mobilize our most valuable asset, IUOE members, to push the effort over the finish line. We have included several items that should assist the effort to reach our people and activate them to reach out to their Senators and Member of Congress.
