About Local 525

UA Local 525 Plumbers, Pipefitters, and Service Technicians was chartered on July 9, 1938.  Local 525 has been protecting the health of Southern Nevada through Plumbing, Pipefitting and HVAC Service work for more than 80 years.

Our contractors employ the members of local 525 in many construction industries including Heavy Industrial, Commercial and Residential Sectors as well as Plumbing and Refrigeration Service.

Our state of the art training facility instructs journeymen and apprentices alike in all aspects of the plumbing, pipefitting, and service field. Apprentices complete a five year program with 1,230 classroom hours and 8,500 on the job hours; journeymen utilize the training center to keep their skills sharp, maintain various certifications, and keep abreast of the ever changing technology being used in the construction industry.

Local 525 members are proud to partner with our signatory contractors to deliver sophisticated piping systems to the end user which are so important to the infrastructure of our community. From the co-generation plants which power our communities and the hospitals which care for our citizens, to the Raiders Stadium and McCarran International Airport, as well as our schools, military installations, and gaming industry, members of UA Local 525 have built and maintained the piping infrastructure on which Southern Nevada thrives.

Local 525 is proud to be a productive member of the Southern Nevada business community.  Since our inception, we've taken an active role and will continue to play an ever bigger role as Las Vegas continues to grow into one of the best places in the United States to Work, live, and play!
