Local 571 International Union of Operating Engineers

Mission Statements



IUOE 571 is committed to honesty, integrity and transparency. We strive to create the best experience for our members so that they can go to work as proud members of IUOE LOCAL 571.  

Today we are more than 500 men and women in Nebraska and Iowa. We have contracts for highway/heavy and building contractors, equipment repair shops, sand and gravel suppliers, counties, municipalities, school districts and more.

All workers are entitled to a fair and just share of America's wealth. Trade Unions exist because workers want a fair share of the wealth produced by his or her labor. Contrary to popular belief, we are not organized to be a social club or to harness hidden agendas. Our singular purpose is to advance the welfare of workers and working families.

Our mission is equally simple. Our founders realized that In Unity There is Strength. Unionized workers pledge to work together maintaining and improving their wages, benefits and working conditions through collective bargaining. Only through unity can a trade union successfully fulfill its purpose and provide all workers the dignity, security and respect they deserve. Our mission, as stated in our Constitution is, "to organize all persons working in the jurisdiction of this International Union without regard to race, creed, color, sex, religion, age, or national origin.".
