The UA is taking positive steps to change that perception, in part through our Standard for Excellence program.  This program is explained in detail in the video that is available through the link below. I hope you will take a few minutes to watch this video, and that you will join with me in making a commitment to the principles of this program. By doing so, you will help ensure that, for years to come, the United Association and our contractors will be the number one source for skilled labor in our industry and that we will gain the respect we deserve.

I welcome any comments or suggestions you have regarding our Standard for Excellence. Your   feedback is essential to the success of this program. Please pass your thoughts on to me at the UA General Office.

Fraternally yours,

William P. Hite
General President"
