  • Title: UA.org: UA History
    Descriptive info: United Association History.. The birth of the United Association dates back to the year 1889, when a Boston plumber named P.. J.. Quinlan addressed a brief letter to Richard A.. O'Brien, a plumber in Washington, D.. C.. "Dear Sir and Brother," the letter began, "I take the liberty of addressing a few lines to you to obtain your views as regards the formation of a United Brotherhood ".. The author of the letter would become the first General President and its recipient the first General Secretary-Treasurer of the United Association.. Prior to 1889, plumbers, steamfitters and gas fitters who were organized were members of independent local unions with either no affiliation, or affiliation with a variety of trades.. By 1889, however, with existing organizations declining or becoming devoted to only one craft, local union leaders began to consider other ways to unite national pipe trades journeymen to deal with mutual problems, including how to treat traveling members, build apprenticeship, and provide strike aid.. In response to these issues, the United Association was officially born on October 11, 1889.. The original name of the organization was the United Association of Journeymen Plumbers, Gas Fitters, Steam Fitters and Steam Fitters' Helpers of the United States and Canada.. The Early 1900's.. At the turn of the century, early UA leaders faced new challenges and were forced to make numerous controversial and revolutionary decisions.. Among these was establishment of a mechanism that would allow UA members to travel to jobs throughout the United States and Canada.. The clearance card system was created to enable unemployed journeymen in one locality to travel to work in another.. This "mobility" became especially important during the early 1900's, when the construction industry entered a period of tremendous expansion.. From 1898 to 1914, the UA quadruped its membership.. During these years, under the leadership of General President John S.. Kelley, steps were taken to strengthen the UA on a national basis.. One of those was establishment of the stamp system of dues collection.. This move dramatically improved the UA's financial stability and provided a means of compiling a reliable list of affiliated local unions and their membership.. Significant progress toward a sound, modern union came in 1902 in Omaha, Nebraska, when delegates to the UA convention approved a plan to provide a comprehensive system of sick, death and strike benefits.. The UA's nationalization efforts were further strengthened during the general presidency of John R.. Alpine from 1906 to 1919.. His term in office was marked by extraordinary executive skills that resulted in the implementation of many important reforms and changes in an atmosphere of harmony.. The Great Depression.. During the first two decades of the 20th century, the UA moved boldly into the forefront of the American labor movement.. Landmark accomplishments included the creation of a formal five-year apprenticeship program, the expansion of UA influence to include construction of industrial plants and public utilities, and a growth in membership to 60,000 by the year 1929.. Then disaster struck in the form of the Great Depression.. With the stock market crash of 1929 and  ...   construction contributed to this rise, but other events also enhanced the strength of the UA.. One of those was the development of national agreements between the UA and large, national contractors.. The landmark UA-NCA (National Constructors Association) National Construction Agreement was signed in 1941.. The post-war years were also marked by the rise of one of organized labor's most prominent leaders -- George Meany, the first president of the newly-formed merger of the two principal labor organizations (the American Federation of Labor and the Congress of Industrial Organizations) into the AFL-CIO.. A plain-spoken man of great courage and dignity, he was perhaps the most influential figure in shaping the American labor movement from the mid-1950's until his death in 1980.. George Meany was also a proud member of United Assocation Local 2 in New York City.. The ties between the UA and the AFL-CIO have always been strong.. The UA became an affiliate of the American Federation of Labor in 1897, and the United Association General Office in Washington, D.. was originally built by Samuel Gompers in 1915-16 to serve as AFL headquarters.. Today, the UA is one of the strongest forces within the Building and Construction Trades Department of the AFL-CIO.. A New Millennium Of Pride Through Excellence.. In 1989, the UA proudly celebrated its 100th anniversary.. As we move into the new century, the UA remains a strong, vital organization comprised of thousands of highly skilled men and women who have joined together for a common purpose.. Today's UA members use their skills in commercial, industrial and residential arenas.. Among the many projects on which UA members can be found are single-family homes, garden and high-rise apartment buildings, large and small office complexes, power plants, refineries and factories.. The pipe trades industry provides water supply, waste and sewage services, water treatment and sewage treatment systems.. In addition, the UA's jurisdiction includes heating, air conditioning and refrigeration systems, along with automatic-sprinkler and fire-protection systems.. To ensure that there remains a steady supply of tradesmen skilled enough to meet the challenges of today's diverse and expanding construction industry, the UA has shaped a superb training program.. In fact, the UA's commitment to training is unsurpassed among trade unions worldwide.. The journeymen produced by this training program over the years are the backbone of the United Association.. From humble beginnings of 40 delegates representing 23 independent unions in 10 states and the District of Columbia, the United Association has grown to a powerful, international union representing over 300,000 members in more than 300 local unions throughout the United States and Canada.. The UA has been at the forefront of the fight for worker's rights for over 100 years.. Now, as we move into a new millenium we are faced with many new and imposing obstacles.. To prepare our membership for the rapid advancements in technology and the way business is conducted, the UA has developed one of the most extensive training programs of any union in the world, spending more than $1 million dollars a week ensuring that our members are prepared for the future..

  • Title: UA.org: Green
    Descriptive info: The UA's Green Initiative.. The United Association (UA) is a multi-craft union representing Plumbers, Pipefitters, Sprinkler Fitters, and HVACR Service Technicians throughout North America.. The USGBC’s LEED rating system standards for Storm Water Design, Water Efficiency, Energy Atmosphere, and Indoor Environmental Quality transform are architectural and engineering concepts that are transformed into reality by the knowledge and hands-on skills of UA workers.. The design and installation of sustainable water and energy systems in our buildings and homes are just the starting point of energy efficiency and sustainability.. If a building or home is to remain “green over time,” it must be maintained and serviced by workers who feel ownership in the Green Building Movement.. From installation and startup, to scheduled or emergency service, UA workers are involved at every stage in life of an industrial, commercial, or residential building.. Environmental systems in the commercial and residential structures, in which these new workers would live and work, became more and more complex, our national educational system reduced or eliminated essential training in hands-on skills and related craft areas.. The UA skilled trades training programs were never reduced in size or scope.. Since we could no longer assume that entry level students were familiar with shop safety, basic physics, mechanical principles or the use of  ...   Fitting or HVACR.. UA pipe trades industry workers are the heart, lungs, brain, and circulatory system of the Green Building Movement.. The UA is very proud of its leadership role in Skilled Trades Training.. For the past three years we have been training instructors to certify our members in Green Systems Awareness.. The program is also open to our Employer Partners as well as to the general public.. The UA Green Systems Awareness program has recently been recognized by the United States Green Building Council’s Educational Provider Program.. The UA’s Green Systems Awareness Certification program has met the following criteria established by the USGBC for educational programs:.. Are preeminent in green building education and align with USGBC’s educational mission.. Offer courses at all learning levels to supplement USGBC’s core educational offerings.. Are thoroughly reviewed and meet USGBC’s criteria for instructional design and content quality.. The United Association is honored to have one of our educational programs in the field of Sustainable Technology receive this recognition by the United States Green Building Council.. Some new green developers naively start off by asking “What is the minimum amount of training necessary for a person to build, inspect and maintain green buildings”? Well, the fact is that, at the UA, we don’t have “minimum training.. ”..
