In one of MCPS’ first outreach meetings,
UA Executive Vice President, Rick Terven,
Representative David Barnett and International Representative Lance Albin
joined us to discuss common goals and cooperative efforts.

As result of this meeting, UA General President, William Hite sent MCPS a
personal letter of 
thanks, noting that as the “leading trade organization in pipeline construction and maintenance,

[the UA] is committed to continuously enhancing the industry and lives of our members [and that as UA] represents 370,000 highly skilled men and women in the piping industry… We strongly share [MCPS] concerns and believe that the safety of our workers and communities should be a top priority for our industry.”

When MCPS began efforts to organize this conference, UA General President, William Hite was the first to support MCPS, both fiscal and philosophically.

In support of MCSP efforts, we also specifically acknowledge the support of UA Special Representative Mike Mikich, Gas Distribution and Anthony Gallagher, Business Manager, Steamfitters Local Union 420.
