A message from President Anthony Braccio, Jr.:
I’d like to take this opportunity to address the Membership via our website due to the restrictions we are all facing as a result of the COVID-19 virus.
I have had the privilege of being an active member of Local 137 for 47 years, and the honor of being President and Business Representative for the last seven years.
I have decided to retire effective
May 29, 2020 (this Friday).
I am very proud to have been a part of this great organization.
In closing, I am wishing every member and their families, the best health, safety and happiness life has to offer.
Anthony Braccio, Jr.
Brothers and Sisters,
As you are aware, public health officials have discouraged all gatherings in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak.
In light of the growing concern for the health and safety of our employees, we have decided to restrict the entry of
non-employees to our offices. While both our Union and Welfare offices remain open at this time, we are offering reduced hours. The union hall will be open Monday thru Thursday from 8:00am to 2:30pm - Lunch will be 12:30 to 1:00. We are asking members to make any deliveries and drop-offs in our drop-box at the main entrance. Our phone lines also remain open for any questions or concerns
All members have access to a Telemedicine service called Swift MD. Please go to http://www.swiftmd.com for information on how to access this service.

Re: Petition to support full-scale downstate gambling-Empire Casino
Empire City Casino by MGM Resorts is asking for support from the Building Trades to help get petitions signed by our membership supporting full-scale downstate gambling. With this support they are hoping to get the moratorium on full scale gambling lifted before the 2023 expiration date.
When this happens, they will expand their facility and have agreed to do the construction work under a PLA with the Building Trades

Greetings from Business Manager Jeffrey J. Loughlin
Welcome to the website of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 137.
Local 137 represents the Operating Engineers in the counties of Westchester, Putnam and parts of Southern Dutchess. Operating Engineers operate and maintain heavy equipment such as cranes, loaders, backhoes, excavators, forklifts and bulldozers which help build the roads, bridges, tunnels, buildings and infrastructure that keep our great nation moving ahead.
Currently our members are working on one of the largest infrastructure projects in New York State and the nation, the new Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, formerly known as the Tappan Zee Bridge. We are also manning the DEP Water Tunnel Project in Dutchess County.
There are other major projects underway in Dutchess County, including the new Vassar Brothers Medical Center in Poughkeepsie, NY. and the Cricket Valley Power Plant in Dover, NY. We expect these projects to provide our members with steady employment as well as making substantial contributions to our funds. We are also patiently waiting for the rebuilding of our infrastructure, which will require the skilled talents and services of Operating Engineers.
As always, we are united in solidarity and proud to be Operating Engineers.
Please review each tab to learn more about Local 137 and if you have any questions, please contact our new web manager at email@example.com.
