Voices from the Field: Natural Gas as a Community Staple


The lives of UA290 members and our neighbors are intricately intertwined with the vitality of natural gas. It’s not just a fuel source; it’s the lifeblood that courses through our homes, businesses, and recreational spaces. If you ever wondered about the glue that binds our communities together, look no further than plumbers and pipefitters.

Central to our way of life are the dedicated members of our labor force, all 5,000 contributing to the efficient distribution of natural gas. Their roles span from meticulously fusing pipes to ensure the safety of our infrastructure to carefully digging ditches that promote a reliable flow of energy. Their unwavering commitment ensures that each of us can rely on the continuous flow of energy that powers our daily lives.
