Welcome to UA Local Union No. 51
Local 51 Plumbers, Pipefitters and Refrigeration Technicians are involved in just about every aspect of construction in Rhode Island, Southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod and the Islands involving piping in commercial, industrial and residential projects.
When contractors and owners hire craftspeople who are members of Local 51, we make one promise: You are hiring the most highly skilled and best trained plumber, pipefitter or refrigeration expert in the business.
That's why we can say with confidence---Done Once. Done Right!
Throughout our great history, we've worked on many high profile projects in working to build Rhode Island and Massachusetts into the great states they are today. We're proud to have worked on projects such as the Providence Place Mall, AmGen, University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, and Providence College.
If you're building a new or upgrading your current industrial, commercial, or residential facility, build and service with the Plumbers and Pipefitters of Local 51 by utilizing one of our Signatory Contractors.
Our plumbers "Protect the Health of the Nation" and the highly skilled members of Local 51 are no different. We specialize in both commercial and residential work, and also in back-flow and dye testing.
We encourage you to peruse our website to learn more About Us. We want you to contact us and we can send a member of our team to evaluate your upcoming project, and what separates us from everyone else is our skill and training. Our apprentices go through a rigorous 5-year program on their way to becoming experience journeymen, but the training doesn't end there. We continue to provide upgrade training so that there is no project too complex or small that we cannot fulfill on-time and budget for you!
