Pat Meloche

Business Agent

Pat has been a member of the International Union of Operating Engineers since 1990, becoming a member in good standing after signing a union card during an organizing drive while running equipment for a non-union employer.


Pat attributes his successful work history to Premay Pipeline Hauling, who brought Pat to work on multiple projects running a boom, Pat was then indentured as a Crane Apprentice. Pat’s best job was running sidebooms, cranes and operating other equipment.


His ability to relate to people within the pipeline sector comes from his firsthand experience in the industry. As a Business Agent, Pat is heavily involved in the dispatch process, collective bargaining and employer relations.


Pat is a huge proponent of communicating information to members. Pat believes each member’s support and involvement creates opportunity and a better outcome during negotiations for everyone involved. Pat’s straight and direct communication skills are one of his best attributes.


One of Pat’s goals as a Business Agent, is to have unions work together. People working together, rather than against each other, can accomplish more.
