Plumbers and Pipefitters Local No. 562 has been a beacon for Eastern Missouri and its Piping Industry since the United Association chartered Steamfitters Local No. 562 in St. Louis on March 7, 1912. Plumbers Local No. 35 of St. Louis, with 1,300 members (which has been chartered in 1890), was consolidated with Local 562 and its 2,200 members on January 1, 1999, creating the current Local 562.
UNION HISTORIES produced a History Book for Local 562 -- and Local 35 -- to help celebrate the grand opening of the local's new, state-of-the-art Training Center in St. Louis in 2022.
