I am a military certified heavy equipment operator from Oklahoma. I have recently moved to Newberg and am looking for work. My friends tell me that unions are the way to go, so. How do I find them, How do I join them, How much does it cost, How much does it pay, How soon can I start working.

I was a surveyor for awhile and being at construction sites alot I was always courious on how I could get into driving the dumps. I believe the technical name for them is Vocational trucks but I'm not positive. For and example to better help understand what I am saying if you were to go to PeterBuilt.com then click on truck gallery and go down to vocational models and look at model 367 that's what I want to get into. Any information at all would help. Thanks

Its a dump truck Rob.All you got to do is get a CDL licience and some trucking co.will hire you,you probably will not be driving a nice shiny 367 but you will have accomplished your dream.Depending on your age you should aim at somthing hire than driving a truck,but that is were i started,Best wishes

If you decide to go union there are some things you need to consider.First,if you go into an apprentice program it will be a few years before you get into a seat full time.Second,If you go and buy an operators book you will be put on the C list(that's the bottom).Third,If your International Union of Operating Engineers local in Cleveland is jammed full of out of work operators;you will probably need someone who is already a member in good standing
to sponsor you and the book will be expensive.Honestly,Right now with the housing slow down,construction is not good.I have 25 years as an operator and 10years as a foreman and I'm not staying busy.I hate to be the harbinger of doom; but you should know that you will be competing with guys like me for what little jobs there are right now.Just keep filling out apps and whenever possible "sell yourself".Good luck to you,if you have any other questions e-mail me at mongobish@yahoo.com

I would search on the net for the local union where you are located. Try typing in "international operators local" on google and do some hunting. The local numbers vary by region and state. If you have some experience, but have no contractor to sign you up, you may have to go through the apprenticeship program for a bit. If you have no luck, get a job with a contractor that does underground or building projects and get as much experience as you can. I started in the ditch four years ago and got in a machine every chance I could. If your green, take your time and don't be reckless. Get a feel for the machines. I'm twenty five and I now am a union operator. I just got signed up by contractor this summer after he gave me a shot and saw I had potential. I ws put in brand new Komatsu PLC300 with maybe 20 hours of track hoe time. Thats an eighty thousand pound excavator. I learned from the ground up and had plenty of backhoe time. Learn from the ground up and watch other operators to pick up on techniques you can apply with your own style. Hard work pays off. Bust ass and the boss will give you a shot. If you whine, hate on the other operators, or slack it will have a negative effect to your long term goal. It took me three years to get in my union so don';t lose hope and good luck!

Contact your local International Operating Engineers Union. Thats what I did. To be honest, your gonna have to labor before you get in the chair. It's a good way to get feild experience and see how everything works. Hope that helps.

u wont have to labor at all if your an apperntice you will be running stuff like loaders and things to get your feet wet but ive never heard of a operating engineer laboring that would be the laborers union now u might have to grade check which is labor intensive and alot of walking but u will be learning how to interpret gradestakes,or u may help the mechanics and oilers if u choose to get some experience in that area but that would be your choice operating engineers dont labor,swing hammers,wire houses,we run machines dont let anyone tell u different

Well Rick, if she's lucky enough to get an apprenticeship thats different. Which if she doesnt she's gotta get experience somehow. The best operators start from the ground up as 99% of US union operators on the pipelines will say. I sure as hell wouldn't want a green hand swinging 60" rcp storm sewer around me. The operators we have that did't start in the ditch don't have what it takes to dig on the main line. Too slow and don't know what the laborers and pipelayers need you to do. They backfill. But thats in my line of work. You must have a pink seat cover and have an ego bigger than your bucket if you think you can just jump on in the chair and not get dirty. Get real cream puff.

well sweetcheeks in my line of work haulin dirt and building pads and such there is no labor except the grade checkers and pounding wood in the ground which i have done also and as for the ego i think you have the ego problem or you wouldnt have responded,you sound like one of those guys that say "i been doing this for 30 years" but you probly been doing it wrong for 30 years must be a slow learner the only way to learn is to jump in the chair moron anyways the way to get in the apprentice program is to hit up your local and ask the when the entrance exam is sign up for it and depending how well you do on the test usually determins how fast youall go out and OPERATE not dig ditches

IUOE Local #3 which covers California and several other states has 40,000 operators out of work. These are real numbers people. I think the odds of getting in right now are worse than winning the lottery. I don't want to discourage anyone, but until Obama takes office and straightens out this ffuucckkkiiin mess "Bush The Wannabe President Definite Oil BBBIIITTCCHH" made, hang tight. It will pick up and Obama and the Democratic Party support the Unions! This frickin deregulated Wall Street is to blame big time also just as much as our ''do what the hell we want and screw the middle class while we're gettin the rich richer government'' has been doing. The only thing they did for the construction industry in the last 8 years is made it possible for companies get richer to buy a bunch of machines that there is no work for. But it's equity. BBUUULLLSSSHHHIIIT! Now they're sitting and that means there are operators out of work! We want steady jobs, not 6 years of "busy got more work than we know what to do with, to tough as hell times". Anyone disagree, BRING IT ON!

Rick,
Before you start celebrating,Take some time and go enroll yourself in an Economics 101 class up at Moorepark J.C or at CLU.Learn about
supply and demand.Also take the time to find out who passed the laws that "forced" banks to make loans to people who could not afford those loans in the first place.I am no big fan of George W
Bush,But I'm am even less of a fan of a guy who says he is going to
"bankrupt the coal industry" putting even more of our fellow operators out of work.Also ,If you don't drill for oil or gas there
will be no pipeline work.There is an old saying "Be careful what you ask for ,You just might get it".

Like I told Rick,
Be careful what you ask for. Obama has said "If you open up a coal
power plant we will bankrupt you" This will put an end to the coal
industry.He has also said that he is going to reinstate the drilling bans .This means no new pipelines.He does like nuclear power.This means no construction of nuclear power plants. Almost
All these jobs involve unions of every trade,whose members will still not be working.Obama was heavily backed by extreme enviromental groups and people who support these groups.They flipped the bill for him to become president and he is going to answer to them not us.Think about what we do for a living. We get on BIG,FOSSIL FUEL GUZZELING,machines and tear up the earth! We do lots of things Obama and his friends DON'T LIKE!Think about it.

That is scary if he does not allow the drilling and mining expansion to continue. Correct me if I'm wrong but Obama has a plan to build up the infrastructure. Can you tell me what types of projects this would mean. I beleive it is similiar to what they did during the depression like developing the transit system, dam building, and so on. Anyone got details?

Dirt Slinger,
The type of infrastructure projects that went on in the 30's were
massive to say the least.However,these days it would take almost an act of God to get anything close to what they did back then going.Lets say Obama wanted to build another Hoover Dam (this was
one of the many projects they did back then)With all the environmental impact reports and other red tape,it would take years
just for the permits to clear.Plus if he gets his tax increases that he wants,The contractors doing these jobs will up the price of the bids so they can make their normal profit margines.You and I
will pay for that.His buddies in congress will see to that.

No shiiittt, what a switch that would be! Well I sure hope it does gain some momentum this spring. I dropped out of college three years ago for process plant technology because of my love for big iron and throwing dirt around. I was working full time laying pipe and running equipment when I got the chance, then doing online and night classes. Not feeling like the smartest move right now. We were fortuanate enough up here in ND to stay busy this year while it was slow elsewhere. Now it finally caught up to us. Oil drilling is hot though if anyone is looking for something like that. I'm gonna hit the rigs myself after the first of the year if nothing comes up.

Rick,
I have heard all this before. It's not just the republicans that are crooks,THEY'RE ALL CROOKS! There are very few up there in Washington that are working for you and me.I don't know about Bush,
but I have met and talked with Dick Cheney and I can assurer you the last thing he wants is to see this country on the same level as
Mexico or have a useless healthcare system like Canada.I have been
a member of a union and I have no problem with them until they start asking for too much.These big shots in the UAW are going to
end up hurting there own people if they don't give a little.My Dad
was a 35yr union member and he use to tell me "If you give little
you will get little,If you give alot you will get alot"

CHENEY IS THE BIGGEST CROOK OF THEM ALL WAKE UP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Heavenly Father . . .

We come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance.

We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil -- good' but that is exactly what we have done.

We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.

We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it Pluralism.

We have worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism.

We have endorsed perversion and called it alternative lifestyle.

We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.

We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.

We have killed our unborn and called it choice.

We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.

We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem.

We have abused power and called it politics.

We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.

We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of speech and expression.

We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our Forefathers and called it enlightenment.

Search us, Oh, God, And know our hearts today;

Cleanse us from every sin and set us free.

Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent to direct us to the center of Your will, to open ask it in the name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ.

Amen!"

Rick '
all those things you mentioned are things liberals like Nancy Pelosi,Bill Ayers,Henry Waxman among many others support.You know,
The people who hate Cheney.You know ,The people who backed Obama.
Rick,Stop smoking pot! Stop listening to the news! Use the brain
God gave you and find out what's going on for yourself.Find out how Al Gore is flying around in a corporate jet(similar to the one
the GM execs flew to Wahington a few days ago) and is making MILLIONS off this global warming scam. All the while making millions off the interests in the COAL MINES that he owns,not to mention the nickel mine that he has on his own property.
