IUOE Supports Infrastructure NOW for IUOE Jobs

The bipartisan infrastructure framework agreed to by President Biden and a group of U.S. Senators is a down payment on world-class infrastructure that is safer, more reliable and will create good-paying jobs for Operating Engineers across the United States.


  • Makes the single largest investment in roads and bridges since the construction of the interstate highway system, which will help us stay safe.
  • Delivers clean drinking water to American families by eliminating lead pipes.
  • Modernizes our power grid and makes it more resilient against cyber-attacks and extreme weather.
  • Delivers reliable high-speed internet access to American homes, drives down prices for internet services, and closes the digital divide.
  • Creates good-paying union jobs that will provide a pathway to the middle class for millions of American working families.

Connects prevailing wages and labor standards to the jobs created, helping to drive a strong and just economic recovery.

The bipartisan infrastructure framework is a blue-collar plan to invest in America by creating jobs for Operating Engineers and ensuring our communities have safe and resilient infrastructure.

Now we need Members of Congress to pass this legislation and create hundreds of thousands of good-paying construction jobs rebuilding our nation. Let’s get to work!

20 Things Biden Has Done to Help Unions and Workers
Support SB 262 for IUOE Jobs: Bipartisan Investment in Missouri Infrastructure!

Missouri’s infrastructure is crumbling. Our state is falling behind and putting our working families at risk. Missouri's transportation network directly impacts the quality of life for Missourians. Good roads and bridges connect us to work, school, healthcare, and recreation. Poor roads and bridges are a threat to the health and well-being of Missouri’s working families.

Senate Bill 262 is a bipartisan bill that aims to fix these problems. Despite maintaining the 7th largest transportation system in the United States, Missouri ranks 45th in transportation funding.

  • $825 million in high-priority transportation needs go unfunded every year.

  • Due to inflation and the ever-improving vehicle fuel economy, the purchasing power of Missouri’s state fuel tax has effectively dropped from 17 cents to 6 cents.

  • More than 6,700 miles of Missouri roadways are in poor condition.

  • Over 2,000 bridges in Missouri are rated as structurally deficient

By passing Senate Bill 262, we provide our state with the tools to fix these problems. And SB 262 will provide our state with good-paying UNION jobs for years and years to come. Those good-paying jobs with benefits will benefit Missouri workers and will build a stronger community and economy for all working families.

CALL your Senator and ask them to support the bipartisan Senate Bill 262 for good-paying jobs and investment in our aging infrastructure.
