Local 178 - North Texas

Local 178 was chartered on November 1, 1993 when the International Union of Operating Engineers merged locals 819 and 714.  As a hoisting and portable local we are made up of heavy equipment operators for the pipeline, building trades, and crane rental industries.   We have a training facility, located at 6300 Cromwell Marine Creek Road Fort Worth, TX  76179, with up to date equipment that you will find in the field.  The equipment can also be used by any operating

engineer to hone or upgrade their skills.  We train with a John Deere side boom and back hoe, a Caterpillar motor grader, track hoe, skid steer and D5 dozer, and a Gehl forklift.  We have an onsite accredited NCCCO examiner that is capable of testing for fixed cab, swing cab, truck crane, crawler crane and tower crane practical exams.  He is also accredited to test for NCCCO signal person and rigging. 

Our office is located at 4025 Rufe Snow Drive.  North Richland Hills, Texas  76180.  Our phone number is 817-284-1191.  We have professional secretaries staffing our offices Monday - Friday, 7AM to 4PM.  Local 178 is here to service our members and help our other local brothers and sisters, if called upon to do so.
