Northern Nevada Local 350 Journeymen

For over a century the United Association has been training the most highly qualified work force in the nation and Canada. No other organization hold themselves to the "Standard of Excellence" as the UA. Local Union 350 has been a Chartered part of this training for over 100 years and recognizes the dedication and achievement of the local labor movement in the Reno Tahoe and outlying areas. Our jurisdiction covers a vast majority of Nevada, from the Oregon Idaho border to the North, South to Tonopah, to the Tahoe Basin to the West, and to the Utah border to the East. Today we proudly carry on the accomplishments of our forefathers to build a stronger union brotherhood. Local Union 350 is over 600 members strong with over 150 apprentices in our JATC program. The work outlook for our jurisdiction is looking the best we have seen in decades and this will provide good paying jobs to continue building our Local even more. We will have the opportunity to continue to provide for not only our Local but our family friends and those in need in our community. Our outreach has never been so strong and the programs we are building and the relationships with organizations in need is outstanding, we have been able to provide more generously and volunteer more than ever. All this could not be done without the help and sacrifice of the membership we have become. The work outlook and the projects in our area have exceeded all historical levels for our Local, Northern Nevada will continue to grow as will our Membership and there is no end in sight. We are very fortunate in these times and we will continue to pass down our good fortune to those of honorable toil. We work for a common goal to better the standard of life for our membership and families and labor is our means of this accomplishment.

Unions began in the 20th century for Nevada by skilled craftsmen and Industrial workers Nevada was the first in the west to form a Labor union. Local 350 was granted a charter on October 13, 1906 by the United Association of journeymen. It is by the members that the standard of craftsmanship will be raised in the Reno Tahoe Local areas, for many years to come through training and the Journeymen to apprentice skilled trades being passed down through the generations.

Our local has much diversified contractor labor relations with our work outlook and as it should be it will be and is constantly challenged by Contractor Labor relationships. Through history Labor unions have forged strong ties with our signatory contractors. We have a solid partnership with our local contractors and others coming into our area and this is a great portion of our success. Some of the relationships with these contractors have been some of the longest lasting in the great state of Nevada. As our Local grows so will these relationships and both will bring prosperity to our local and its members. That said Local 350 Plumbers and Pipefitters and HVAC techs have been responsible for building, installing, and maintaining all aspects of piping systems in the industry that occupy our Local 350 jurisdictions.

An opportunity into this Membership can be one of the best and most important decisions you can ever make so please take the time to ask yourself if you have the same lasting beliefs and morals as have been described here, if so you to can become a member of Local 350 Reno Nevada and grow and prosper with us. Good Luck.
