IUOE-68.ORg browser issues
please read carefully!

The old iuoe-68.org website was built in 2004 and uses a security protocol called SHA-1 for encryption.  In the years that passed, SHA-1 has been improved upon and left behind so that by modern standards, is considered to be weak encryption and no longer secure.  The latest updates to many modern browsers are warning you of this fact and preventing access to the old website.

As a result, we have moved all of our public information to this new website

The ONLY reason to continue to use the old website is for features that require custom data.

those features are:

  • Job Listings

  • Pension and Annuity Statements

  • Your Labor Agreement

  • Student LMS access

In the meantime...

  • The old website HAS NOT been hacked. 
    It is simply out of date.

    • Think of it like keeping an extra house key hidden under your welcome mat.
      Would it be fairly easy for an intruder to find your key and gain entrance?  YES.
      Does it mean that it has actually happened or is likely to?  NO.

  • Your web browser may not load the OLD site at all, giving a message saying that your connection is not secure. YOU CAN Follow the directions for your browser below to load the site anyway.

  • Once on the old iuoe-68.org site, your browser may nag you in the LOGIN BOX THAT "this is a bad idea".  you can log in anyway.

  • Ultimately, whether you choose to log into the old iuoe-68.org website or not is your choice.

We apologize for this inconvenience, and appreciate your patience while we make these major upgrades.

Microsoft has not yet disabled access, and so it should not run into the "Access denied" security issues that the other browsers raise.  Microsoft has stated that they will begin to disable SHA-1 based websites sometime in 2017.
