UA Local 211 was chartered in 1949 and is one of over 300 local unions in the United Association. They’re Houston’s premier source for the fabrication, installation and servicing of piping systems. They’ve been training qualified pipe tradesmen longer than anyone else in the industry, and their commitment to their craft is stronger than ever. They invest millions annually in training, including five-year apprenticeship programs, extensive journeymen training, organized instructor training, certification programs and state-of-the-art classrooms and facilities. In addition to the most advanced, hands-on training available, their members also enjoy union benefits such as healthcare coverage, pension, representation and more. The investment they make in their people is translated into the unmatched quality of their work. This reputation has led to a number of seasoned relationships with the largest contractors in Houston.
They partner with signatory contractors to deliver sophisticated piping systems to the end user. The level of skill and professionalism they bring to these jobs is vital to the infrastructure of the community. Their advanced training allows them to work with signatories in many construction industries – heavy industrial, commercial and residential sectors.
