Great career opportunities for those with piping industry experience

Men and women who are currently working in the piping industry for a non-union contractor should discover the many benefits of becoming a member of the United Association with Local 404. By joining our Local Union, individuals with industry experience will earn top wages, excellent full-family health insurance and great retirement benefits, including a 401k and a pension plan.

We are seeking men and women with experience in the following pipe trades:

  • Commercial licensed plumbers
  • Residential licensed plumbers
  • HVAC-R service technicians
  • Pipefitters
  • Welders

Our members proudly and safely work on some of the region’s most exciting and important projects.

From working on pipelines, industrial facilities and entertainment complexes, to building hospitals, schools and office buildings, there is a need for union pipe trades members. Additionally, there is a need for men and women with experience to build, maintain and service residential homes. In short, there are bountiful opportunities for experienced piping industry professionals in our jurisdiction.

By joining Local 404, those who have the skillset to enter the union at a journeymen level will be able to take advantage of our training programs. Members of Local 404 are encouraged to take journeyman upgrade classes to stay on top of the newest industry technologies and improve their overall skillset. Additionally, every few years a member may be required to take a specific safety training course in order to either renew an OSHA safety certification or to obtain a new safety certification.

For those men and women who do not have the experience to join Local 404 as a journeyman, they can become apprentices and work their way up to becoming a journeyman – all while receiving full benefits and good pay.

There has never been a better time to join the United Association and today is a good day to take the first step in advancing your career.
