About UA Local 469
UA Local 469 Plumbers and Pipefitters was chartered in 1910, two-years before the state of Arizona became the 48th state. For over 95 years we've been protecting the health of our nation through our Plumbing, Pipefitting and HVAC Service work.
Our contractors employ the members of local 469 in many construction Industries. We work in the Heavy Industrial, Commercial and Residential Sectors. We also specialize in HVAC Service throughout the Central Northern Arizona region, where cooling systems are vital to the economy.
Our members are required to graduate from the UA Internationals certified and accredited Joint Apprenticeship Training Program which produces the best Journeymen in the industry. This 5-year apprenticeship program which requires an apprentice to have over 10,000 hours of on-the-job training as well as over 1,200 hours of classroom education from certified instructors means that you have the most qualified workforce at your disposal.
Our workforce takes pride in partnering with our signatory contractors to deliver sophisticated piping systems to the end user which are so important to the infrastructure of our community.
We do it right the first time, so when Medical Providers in Central and Northern Arizona build new or expand existing facilities, they call on the skilled members of Local 469. The complicated medical gas installations are a vital piece of life saving equipment, along with equally important commodities such as steam systems, potable water systems, and comfort piping systems. These systems are necessary to support the facilities which ensures public safety and saves lives.
There are numerous examples of our participation in developing our communities. We have experience and are currently work in many areas such as:
- Airports, both expansion and renovation
- Bio Research Labs
- Chemical Processing Plants
- Educational Institutions, both Public and Private
- Food and Beverage Processing Facilities
- Military Installations
- Paper Mills
- Power Plants
- Processing Facilities
- Residential Homes and Developments
- Resort Destinations
- Semiconductor Plants
- Strip Malls
- Sports Facilities and Arenas
- Water and Waste Treatment Facilities
Local 469 is extremely proud to be a productive member of the Arizona business community. Since it's inception, we've taken an active role and will continue to play an ever bigger role as Phoenix continues to grow into one of the best places in the United States to Work, Live, and Play!
