Olive Street Design is proud to launch a new website for Chicago Pipefitters Training Center, Local 597. Their five year UA apprenticeship program makes their Pipe Fitters, Welders and HVAC Service Technicians the best in the industry, so your projects are done safely and cost effectively.
The first step that led to this program was the merger of local 598, the Helpers union, with 597 in April of 1915. Under the terms of the agreement to merge, any helper with 5 years experience in steam fitting, automatically became a journeyman with 597. Other members of 598 would become members of 597 after they completed a five-year term of work as a helper. Since no new helpers were to be admitted to the union, this in effect started the gradual elimination of the institution of helper in Chicago steam fitting and opened the door for formal apprenticeship.
