The Plumbers and Steamfitters Local 157 continues to monitor the COVID-19 virus.  The health and safety of our apprentices and instructors at Plumbers and Steamfitters Local 157 is of the utmost importance.  Therefore; until further notice, the apprentice classes at the Terre Haute, Lafayette, Danville and Hutsonville Training Centers will not be in session.  This will be looked at on a weekly basis.  Please monitor this website for updates.

Local 157 and many other unions and businesses provided hands-on exhibits for children of all ages to learn how buildings are built and the skills needed to have a career in the trades field.
