Welcome to UA Local 502

The Plumbers, Pipefitters & Service Technicians of the United Association Local 502 has been constructing, installing, and maintaining mechanical systems throughout our jurisdiction for over 100 years. Our expertise includes plumbing, pipefitting, heating & air conditioning, steam and condensate systems, power gas piping, high purity process systems, hazardous waste systems, pneumatic control systems, pipe fabrication, ASME code welding, pressure vessels, backflow prevention and medical gas installation.

Local 502 has been training qualified pipe tradesmen longer than anyone else in the industry. The United Association and Local 502 boasts the premier training programs available in the industry today, including five year apprenticeship programs, extensive journeyman training, organized instructor training, and certification programs.  

Over the past several decades, United Association Local 502’s training programs have produced a stable, skilled workforce responsible for building and maintaining piping systems in the various industrial and residential facilities that make up Central Kentucky. No one can match our commitment or investment as UA Local 502 spends close to $1 million annually on education and training of Journeymen and Apprentices without any government funds.

We would like to thank you for visiting our site. If we can be of help, please fill free to give us a call at (502) 361-8492 or contact one of our contractors listed on this website.
