United Association Local Union 404 was chartered in 2013 as a consolidation of Locals 196, 389 and 629. Their sole purpose is to work with their signatory contractors and local politicians to procure employment for their members under safe working conditions and provide a collective bargaining agreement between their members and employers to establish a fair wage & benefit compensation structure for the work performed.
Union employers support and provide health insurance for the employee & family and participate in a 401K plan. In addition to these benefits, the employers contribute to the United Association of Plumbers & Pipefitters National Pension Benefit Plan to provide a retirement plan for the members upon retiring from the plumbing and mechanical industry. Union employers also support an accredited, structured apprentice program to train apprentices who have chosen a plumbing, pipefitting or HVACR career. They also offer journeyman upgrade classes for members to achieve any & all certifications needed in today’s industry.
In return, their signatory contractors enjoy the comfort of knowing the job is going to be done right the first time, on budget and on time.
