For over century, the United Association (UA) of Plumbers, Pipefitters, and Sprinkler Fitters have been working to build our great region.  Specifically in Boston, there are three separate UA locals within the jurisdiction.

There is also a contractor association which works with each of the local unions. The following organizations are proud to welcome you to our website, UA Boston:
  • Plumbers Local 12 & Plumbing, Heating, Cooling Contractors of Greater Boston
  • Pipefitters Local 537 & New England Mechanical Contractors Association
  • Sprinkler Fitters Local 550 & National Fire Sprinkler Association

This website is a portal site built to help you learn more about each local and the signatory contractor associations.  Our Signatory Contractors employ the members of each union and we're proud to have such a great working relationship that we're building this website as partners.

The reason the site was built is to support a program that the UA members in Boston are doing with the Boston Bruins and NESN.  While the locals and contractors generally promote themselves individually, we also work together for a common goals, in this case, to support Helmets to Hardhats.

Helmets to Hardhats, a Congressionally funded program, is the fastest, easiest way for transitioning military, Reservists, and Guardsmen to find a rewarding career in the construction industry.  By visiting the Helmets to Hardhats website, you can create a free profile to help you find career opportunities in the Building Trades that match your military background.

You don't have to be a piping expert to participate in the Helmets to Hardhats program.  This is a Building Trades initiative which encompasses all of the 14 Building Trades Unions.  Therefore if your strength lies outside of piping systems, say electrical or sheet metal working, then you're still eligible for this great program.
