About Local Union #12

We proudly train our Journey Mechanics and Apprentices to be the most highly skilled and motivated workers in the industry. Local #12 currently has just over 200 apprentices and 60 signatory contractors. All supervisors, superintendents, union officers, and many business owners started as an apprentice in our apprenticeship program.

Hands-on work, using different tools, and learning how to utilize and understand the technologies in this profession have given me a greater sense of achievement. I can drive or walk past a completed job I once worked on and take pride in the fact that I helped make that facility come together. I have
always taken pride in my work, but being a part of Local 12 has really helped drive that mindset
to a new level and has given me a stronger feeling of accomplishment.
