Help save our apprenticeship programs.
Hello. This is James Callahan, General President of the International Union of Operating Engineers. I’m calling about an issue of great importance for our members. Anti-union contractors want to destroy the Operating Engineers’ apprenticeship programs, but your voice can help us stop them. We need you to email prepared comments to the Department of Labor about the importance of our training.
This can easily be done through a website portal. Please go to saveiuoeapprenticeships.org today. There is a deadline for input coming up very soon so please visit the site today. You can also submit a comment as a friend or family member of an IUOE member. Your participation will help save the IUOE apprenticeship programs. Thank you.
Regarding recent allegations, charges and communications, you may have heard or read on social media concerning the Local, please be aware that the duly elected officers of Local 612 are following the process in the Constitution and Bylaws of the International Union of Operating Engineers and Local 612 for resolving internal disputes. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Hall 253-572-9612 and ask to speak with an Officer or Business Representative. We will continue to post updates on this website. For the sake of our members and the future of Local 612 please do not depend on information you may have read or heard about on social media.
Please see the attached letter and flyer from General President Callahan.

A message from General President James Callahan:
Dear Brothers and Sisters:
As was discussed at the Winter Meeting last month, we have developed an online registration system for the International Training Center. I am pleased to announce that the system is now live and ready to start processing course registrations and travel arrangements. The system can be accessed directly at: https://iuoe-itrs.org
In addition, members can find out more about the Training Center, watch a video and register for courses through our main website: https://www.iuoe.org
Course offerings and their descriptions will continue to be added to the Training Schedule. I hope you will share this information with your local leadership, training directors and, most importantly, the rank-and-file membership.
Thank you for your continued support as we work together to bring world-class training opportunities to every IUOE member.
