Why Join Local 478
Union heavy equipment operators are among the highest paid trades people in the construction industry, with superior benefits, including family health, an annuity, a pension and supplemental unemployment benefits. Add to that favorable working conditions, concerns for operator safety, wages and benefits that follow you from job to job, and access to over 400 employers, and you have a complete package that allows you, as a member of Local 478, to enjoy security for yourself and your family during your career. When your working days are through, the Local 478 Annuity, Pension and Retirees Health Benefits assure your families well being.
