Founded in 2011 following a merger of three separate local unions, Local 158 currently represents more than 4,000 heavy equipment operators, mechanics, and stationary engineers in New York State’s public and private sectors. Our three districts represent the territories of each of the original local unions – Local 106, Local 545, and Local 832 – and each office is fully staffed to service the needs of our members. We are now one local union, but maintaining these district boundaries preserves the pride and allegiance which is so important to long-time members and retirees.
