Plumbers, Pipefitters & Service Technicians

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.

VOTE Tomorrow November 6th - (11/5/2018)

Brothers and Sisters,

Click Endorsements to see the list of candidates that have received the endorsement of Local 502 and your COPE committee.

This is a very critical election for Local 502 and all working families in Kentucky and Indiana. I as chairman of the COPE Committee am asking that you DO NOT vote a straight ticket. This is what gave the republicans control of everything in both states. Look at the list being provided to you, I have personally met all these candidates and feel very confident they have our best interests in mind. The COPE Committee and I will support these people and hold them accountable if they do not follow up on their promises to organized labor and working families.

On November 6th, please get out and cast your vote! Remember that the current legislation has passed bills directly attacking organized labor and is attempting to continue this attack on middle class families. It will not stop unless we exercise our right to vote and take back the legislation. We are in a fight daily for our survival.

In solidarity,

Erik Elzy

COPE Committee Chairman
