Upper Peninsula

Plumber, Pipefitters
and HVAC/R


We proudly represent the workforce for plumbers, pipefitters, and HVAC/R-service technicians fields in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and Niagra, Wisconsin. From welding and fitting pipes in a wastewater plant, papermill, mine, or power plant to installing steam systems beneath a city street, we are the men and women who keep critical systems intact. Our high-quality UA apprenticeship program’s make our pipefitters, welders and HVAC service technicians some of the best in the industry.

The Upper Peninsula is just as important to us as it is to you. That’s why we’re dedicated to compensating individuals fairly while allowing them to have successful careers. Here at UA Local 111, we work very hard today in order to build a better tomorrow. We are a brotherhood and a sisterhood and are trained to be the best.

Our union members are lifelong learners. Each individual is kept up to date in their specific fields, with hands-on real world training. In our humble opinion, no other organization serves the training needs of the plumbing, pipefitting, and HVAC/R industry like the United Association Training programs.


What is organizing? Organizing is a term for a group of workers looking to join a union. Workers organize for various reasons, such as improving their working conditions, increasing their pay or benefits, and/or to create a better working environment. We encourage you to read more about us to see if joining our union is right for you and/or your coworkers.


College is fantastic, but you could end up owing thousands of dollars in student loans when you graduate. At the Local 111, you can earn while you learn – with no college expenses!
