Greetings from Business Manager Jeff 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 helped build the roads, bridges, tunnels, buildings and infrastructure that keep our nation moving ahead.
Currently, our members are working on two major hospital building projects, those being the Vassar Brothers Hospital in Poughkeepsie, NY., and the addition to White Plains Hospital. Most recently, Local 137 members completed two other major projects. In the Spring of 2013, Operating Engineers began work on the replacement of the former Tappan Zee Bridge, and in June 2020, the new Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge was completed. This massive project was one of the largest infrastructure projects in our nation, and employed over 500 Operating Engineers from many different locals in the Northeast, in addition to members of Local 137 and 825.
In 2017, Local 137 began The Cricket Valley Power Plant Project in our northern jurisdiction of Dover, New York, and completed the project in May 2020. This project took two and a half years to complete and employed over 100 Local 137 members as well as over 1,100 other tradesmen and tradeswomen.
Ongoing work continues on two DEP Tunnel Projects. These two projects continue to provide Local 137 members with steady employment.
High-rise building construction is also providing work for our Tower Crane Operators. Local 137 members are anxiously waiting for two other major projects to begin. One will be another Tunnel Project and the other will be the de-commissioning of the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant, which is scheduled to begin in late 2021. These two projects will employ many Local 137 members for years to come.
As always, we are united in solidarity and proud to be Operating Engineers. Our wishes for health and safety go out to you and your families.
