Here’s everything you need to know about Local 62, Santa Cruz Local Plumbers Union.
The United Association was established in 1889 as a response to the declining of existing independent or local union organizations. A Boston plumber named P. J. Quinlan saw the need for a united association that would bring together plumbers and pipefitters and took action.
Since its conception, the United Association faced numerous challenges and it was forced to take some creative and revolutionary measures to ensure its growth. When the construction industry entered a period of impressive expansion, it ensured that its members would be able to be more mobile and get employment throughout the US and Canada.
As time passed and the organization showed its ability in solving problems, creating more opportunities for plumbers, and protecting their rights, its membership skyrocketed.
Local 62 of Monterey & Santa Cruz is a child organization, under the parent United Association – PPF. It was created to secure work for its members through negotiation with employers and to ensure a safe and healthy working environment for plumbers and pipefitters.
