Why pick Local 825?

When construction has to be right the first time -- on time and on budget -- Local 825 consistently delivers the best value.

Local 825 represents heavy equipment operators in the construction industry throughout the state of New Jersey and the lower counties of New York state.

Our history has been forged by men and women who operate machines large enough to grade and landscape the earth, excavate, build skyscrapers and literally move mountains with exceptional skills, pride, professionalism and integrity.

Our primary purpose is to excel at what we do. With our training, experience and our drive, we enhance productivity and build value for our contractors. We do the job right the first time, on time and on budget. In exchange, we ensure that our members are treated fairly and viewed as part of the team.

When there's a multi-ton piece of equipment involved, when construction schedules and performance measures have to be met and when safety is always the driver, the best value will always be delivered by members of Local 825.
