Operating Engineers Exposed

Information Operating Engineers organizers hope your employees don't see before your upcoming union election.

  • Is your company facing a Operating Engineer election that threatens to drive a wedge between you and your employees?
  • Are your employees only getting one side of the story from a paid organizer or deluded Operating Engineer supporters?
  • Have your employees fallen for the "too good to be true" promises of a union organizer?
  • Do you wish there was a way to quickly and easily get THE FACTS into the hands of your employees - before it is too late?

Like any good salesman, the Operating Engineers organizer is trained to tell your employees exactly what they want to hear. They exaggerate the benefits of the Operating Engineers while avoiding or even covering up the problems. The organizer knows that most employees - when given a chance to see the facts - will not vote to be represented by a union.

How will your employees find out the truth? Here are THE FACTS your employees need to see TODAY. Before it is too late.
