L-158 turns out for Labor Day parade

BOILERMAKER LOCAL 158 (Peoria, Ill.) members and their families turned out in good numbers Sept. 3 for the annual Peoria Labor Day parade organized by the West Central Illinois Labor Council, AFL-CIO. An estimated 70 union groups participated in the hour-long event.

L-158 members are employed by Komatsu America Corp.’s Peoria Manufacturing Operation, Mining Division. They build large (up to 360-ton payload), off-road mining trucks for mining applications around the world. They also support mining equipment produced at other Komatsu facilities, such as bulldozers, excavators, and wheel loaders.

L-158 was chartered in 1940 as a manufacturing and shop lodge.
