Our business representatives are university educated, specializing in labour relations. As a result, we have a strong track record at the bargaining table and have negotiated some of the best contracts in the province. We are proud to offer exemplary service to all our members, with 1 representative for every 500 members! When our members need assistance, our representatives can be reached by phone or email. They are dedicated full-time to looking after our members concerns and are experienced in dealing with health and safety issues, good wages, and fairness in the workplace.

OE987 has always strived for diversity within all sectors we represent. We are proud that 50 percent of our current membership is comprised of Métis and Indigenous peoples. We want to reflect who we represent in the workplace, as can be seen by the ethnic diversity of our executive and our shop stewards.

We are proud to be an international union with our national headquarters in Ottawa, backed by the strength of 400,000 members across North America. With deep roots and a strong history, the Operating Engineers are a close-knit family that supports one another in time of need. From providing financial assistance at times of flood, wildfires, or tornadoes to celebrating our successes as our membership grows. United, we provide the best service for all of our members.
