UA Local 38
UA Local 38
If you are interested in a career that gives you the satisfaction of working with your hands while challenging you to think on your feet, you should consider a career as a union pipe trades technician.

It takes a special kind of person to succeed in our Apprenticeship Training Program, someone who wants to make a five-year commitment to working hard and studying hard. But a career in the Pipe Trades pays handsome dividends for those who make that commitment.Instead of merely getting a job, why not master a trade? A trade with a proud tradition and a bright future. A trade that offers good pay and great benefits.

Local 38 bridges the Bay with two regional training facilities, the Joseph P. Mazzola Training Centers in San Francisco and Santa Rosa.

You can find out more about Apprenticeship Training and the career opportunities offered, in the “Training Topics” section of their Website.
