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.

Support WIPAHelp urge Gov. Christie to sign WIPA

The Water Infrastructure Protection Act (WIPA) awaits the Governor's signature. WIPA would repair aging water and sewer systems, create well-paying private-sector jobs and improve the fiscal health of strained municipalities.

Most importantly, WIPA will update our water infrastructure to help ensure safe, clean water for our families and communities.

Opponents of this bill are lobbying hard against it, so your support can help make a difference. Please visit the WIPA site and see how you can send a note directly to the governor.
