History note about the United Association of Plumbers and Steam Fitters of the United States and Canada

During its first years, the United Association was essentially a federation of local Unions, rather than a truly national Union of the pipe trades. Founded in 1889, the United Association is one of the most respected and influential building trades unions in the U.S. and Canada today. The major breakthrough toward a unified national organization came at the 1902 national convention in Omaha, when delegates approved a Nationalization Committee proposal establishing a comprehensive system of sick, death and strike benefits. Plumbers Local 592 is located in Tallahassee, Florida.
