Unrivaled Training Programs
Training is the backbone of all UBC millwrights. They may a work in different disciplines and have vastly different areas of expertise, but UBC millwrights are known as the most highly trained workforces in the business. That means mastery of the most up-to-date installation, repair and maintenance methods. That means knowledge of the latest industry tools. And that means adhering to the most stringent safety measures. Our training is continuously upgraded and expanded to keep pace with industry trends and partner needs.
Our 1.2 million-square-foot International Training Center in Las Vegas is the largest and most comprehensive facility of its kind in the world. At this campus, millwrights expand their skills by working on gas and steam turbines, compressors, pumps, two 35-ton overhead bridge cranes and four 20-ton overhead bridge cranes.
It’s a thriving testament to the UBC’s commitment to skills development and productivity, and to building strength as a union and an industry partner.
Critical Industry Connections
Training is part of the story. Networking is the other. Becoming a UBC millwright opens the door to broader industry connections, providing more job opportunities, better benefits, higher pay and career longevity in the field.
UBC millwrights are elite construction professionals who have vital skills to work in industries as diverse as automotive, aerospace, food processing and material handling to mining, petrochemical, pharmaceuticals, and mechanical construction. Because the union maintains close relationships with key contractors and manufacturers in all of these industries, our millwrights have a direct line of opportunity with those entities.
