Membership

Contractors and Journeyworkers

The life blood of any organization is expanding the membership to facilitate growth. The same is true for the Minnesota Pipe Trades Association and it's member unions.

The primary responsibility of our organizing department is the recruitment of non-union workers and contractors. In addition to that, we are dedicated to educating our members, unrepresented workers, non-union contractors and the general public pertaining to our member unions and their efforts to grow the market.

We also work with our contractors, training directors, and union officers to coordinate marketing efforts and community outreach as well as advancing the skill and productivity of our work force to the benefit of our entire industry.

If you or someone you know is interested in a career in the union pipe trades, please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have and we will be glad to help in any way we can.
