History of UA Local 367
Plumbers and Steamfitters Local Union No. 367 was issued its charter on July 2, 1938 by the United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipefitting Industry of the United States and Canada.
The United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters was officially born on October 11, 1889, when forty delegates from twenty-three Local Unions traveled to Washington, D.C. to attend the founding convention. Plumbers and Pipefitters organizations from cities across the nation applied for charters in this new organization. It was forty nine years after the International Union was formed that Local Union No. 367 received their charter.
The formation of Local 367 brought trained and qualified plumbers and steamfitters together with contractors; ensuring fair and consistent work environments, wages, and benefits for members and providing a consistent work force trained to get the job done for contractors.
Plumbers & Steamfitters Local 367 has contributed to the community not only by improving the lives of its members and the product of its contractors, but also by supporting local organizations and community based projects focused on improving lives and the community at large.
From the beginning, Local 367 realized that for an even greater influence, it would be to their benefit to form an organization comprised of the various unions.
This brought about the formation of what is our present day AFL-CIO and Building Trades.
The members of Local 367, as well as other Building Trades Unions in Alaska have played a part in the construction of nearly every major landmark building or project in Alaska.
As we move into the future, we in Local 367 welcome the challenges and demands that will be placed on us. In the next decade, we will continue to evaluate and adapt ourselves and our programs as the needs of our industry dictates.
