Why do contractors belong?
As members of MMCA, our voice, opinions, and concerns are heard as MMCA represents the needs of the union employing contractor - MMCA works together with them for the common good. Only contractors signatory to a United Association of Plumbing & Pipefitting Industry Local Union can be members of the MMCA.
Why be a Union employing contractor?
Proper training is the foundation of our industry! As our economy and population expand, so does the need for individuals who possess fundamental and sophisticated skills. MMCA members, in joint sponsorship with the United Association, have lead the industry in developing effective training programs. From apprentices to journeymen, from job supervisors to project managers, we know that well-trained personnel are crucial to the success of this Industry.
How does MMCA help their Contractors with Labor Relations?
Economics constantly change the face of union construction in our country. With this in mind, MMCA explores - together with our labor counterparts - new avenues of communicating, marketing, education and negotiating.
To help stabilize our Industry, MMCA works with the Michigan Pipe Trades Association on mutual issues of concern.
