Local 324's Mission Statement

To anticipate for, and capitalize on the ever-changing economic, social, political and legal challenges facing our union; to provide an unmatched level of services to members through a dedicated, loyal team of professionals.
Local 324's Value Proposition
Members will provide a fair day’s work, bringing unsurpassed Unity, Pride and Productivity to the job-site while performing safely.
Operating Engineers, Local 324 is a growing, dynamic enterprise. With membership throughout the entire state of Michigan, this Local Union continues to present new opportunities for its members.
Today’s Local 324 is a blend of the all-important, traditional heavy equipment operators who represent us daily in the building and construction market, along with a growing Shop Division membership and numerous public entities that have sought Local 324 representation.  With the collective efforts of our Stationary Division, we also add a multitude of equipment maintenance, public school and health care workers. Together, our collective membership prides itself on being leaders in today’s Michigan organized labor market.  
We are glad you chose this opportunity to visit us...feel free to read more about our current and future plans to help Michigan’s economy and our members’ livelihoods!

    Hall Night
    Effective July 14th, the Bloomfield Township Union Hall will remain open until 8 PM every Monday evening to better serve the membership. Representatives from Health Care, Fringe Benefits and the Union Membership Departments will be on hand to answer questions and assist the membership. Because of this, we will no longer be extending late nights on the first Wednesday of the month at our out-state Union halls. We hope this change shows our commitment to the membership and their needs.
