About Us


We represent equipment operators, riggers, and mechanics. From Orange to San Antonio, McAllen to Austin, and everywhere in between. IUOE Local 450 has consistently provided our business partners with the heavy haul, earth moving, crane and rigging professionals needed for their daily operations.

Our local union has been completely rebuilt in the last few years. With a modern-day outlook, revamped business model, newly elected staff and office personnel – we have been aggressively expanding our presence in Southeast Texas.

Our Vision

Local 450's Vision is simple:

  • Bring local workers and contractors together
  • Provide and promote the highest standard of safety and skills for the industry
  • Elevate our trade

We believe the health and well-being of our members is a critical component in achieving this. Workers with self-worth, training, education, healthcare, and a dignified retirement are far more productive than workers without.


Local 450 partners with contractors in 101 counties in Texas to provide a skilled, trained, and qualified workforce.
