I would again like to say welcome to our site. It is with great pride that I make this introduction on behalf of UA Local 56 and its 1400 members. Our Local union and its business partners have been doing quality work in Nova Scotia for over 100 years.

The membership of Local 56 is made up of skilled trade's people in all aspects of the piping industry including Multi-storey, Residential, Commercial, Institutional and Service plumbers, Steamfitters, Pipefitters, High Pressure Welders, HVAC Refrigeration Technicians, Sprinkler System Installers, Instrumentation Technicians, Gas Fitting Technicians, Oil Burner Mechanics and Metal Trade Fabricators.

These trades people pride themselves in "Doing it right the first time" and our intensive training programs ensure this motto is achieved. The United Association has implemented a program called the Standard of Excellence. This details what our business partners can expect from our trades people.

If you are a contractor or owner and are not signatory but are looking for a work force that is very productive, highly skilled and committed to working safely and efficiently, we invite you to contact us or drop by and tour our training centre.

If you are a tradesperson and are not a member and are interested in discussing our training, medical benefit package or our generous pension plan, we would like to hear from you.

To all our members, please check our "members section", we would appreciate your input concerning this site.
