Durante Rentals partners with union

Jun. 06, 2021

Durante Rentals, New Rochelle, N.Y, has entered into a partnership with the International Union of Operating Engineers. The IUOE is a 400,000-member trade union representing construction workers primarily employed as heavy equipment operators, mechanics, surveyors, drivers and stationary engineers.

The Local 15 trade union represents over 5,000 construction industry workers who help build and maintain New York City’s heavy civil construction sites, high-rise buildings, government, and municipal projects. All Durante Rentals hourly operational staff working within the five boroughs of New York City have joined the IUOE’s NYC-based Local 15C.

“Construction activity is currently booming in New York City and is expected to significantly increase with the passing of an infrastructure bill,” said Steve Durante, chief of sales. “No other city possesses the infrastructure we have here and unionization allows us to play a key role in its development.”

“Our staff is the foundation of our success,” said Anthony Durante, CEO. “To support our growth, we look forward to adding new employees from a large and highly skilled labor pool.”
