About Us

Gone are the days of cloak and dagger when joining together as a united front was to be kept hush-hush.

Today, it is widely known and accepted that unions provide an improved experience and way of life for both the workforce and business owners alike.

Established in 1948, Local 955 is one of the largest IUOE locals in North America. We are the largest trade union supporting hoisting and portable, and stationary equipment operators in Alberta.

Our members help Alberta thrive. They’re the backbone of our oilfield, mining, construction and transportation industries. They build and maintain roads, pipelines and refineries in our towns and cities. We work with more than 100 agreements in place across Alberta.
