ALLU, East Brunswick, N.J., and the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) — a trade union that represents heavy equipment operators, mechanics, surveyors and stationary engineers in the U.S. and Canada — have created a partnership in pipeline training.
Through this partnership, IUOE has begun using an ALLU Transformer screening bucket for its pipeline application training program. The first training was held in Texas, beginning on June 17, 2020. IUOE will be using the ALLU Transformer unit, donated by ALLU Group, for all future pipeline training sessions.
“We had spoken previously, but we developed the partnership more fully during CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 in Las Vegas,” said Bryan Abel, UOE/PLCA national pipeline training director. “We sat down at the show, and Edgar [Edgar Chavez, ALLU Group president] told us, ‘We want to help.’ We have IUOE operators who use the ALLU buckets, and we agreed this would enhance our training. So, we ironed out the details.”
