Education being one of our core values, we believe in life-long learning and using the best possible training providers available.  UA Local 516 apprentices are expected to be the become the best journeymen in the industry, and UA Local 516 journeymen are given many opportunities to enhance and update their skill set regularly.  By keeping ahead of the pack, our apprentices and journeymen give our contractors the edge when it comes to providing high-quality work.

Whatever their faults, unions have been the only powerful and effective voice working people have ever had in the history of this country.
