About Plumbers and Gasfitters Local 12

The officers, staff, and members of Plumbers & Gasfitters Local 12 would like to welcome and thank you for visiting our website.

Plumbers & Gasfitters Local 12 Boston was chartered on February 7, 1890 by the United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing, Pipefitting, and Sprinkler Fitting Industry of the United States and Canada, Plumbers and Gasfitters Local 12 has been aggressive with defending the integrity of the plumbing industry.  We have also made it our goal to insure that hard working plumbers have job protection and top wages on public projects in the Commonwealth.

Plumbers Local 12 prides itself on serving the membership and assisting them with their future retirement.  Benefits for Local 12 members are considered one of the best in the industry.  Our members can retire with dignity and never worry about whether Social Security will be enough to live a quality life.

Plumbers Local 12 has one of the most advanced training facilities for journeymen plumbers in the region.  Local 12 Apprentices attend 5 years of comprehensive training.  Members of Local 12 who are licensed have the benefit of acquiring advanced skills, such as medical gas training, and certifications in welding.   This training does not bear any cost to our members in comparison to non-union workers who have to pay out of pocket for their apprenticeship training, and advanced journeymen training.  Last, classes for continuing education, which is mandated for licensed plumbers in the Commonwealth, take place in the hall for a nominal fee.
