The United Association represents world class piping professionals that deliver productivity and safety to the construction industry.

The Quality Control Council (QCC) is a joint venture between the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers (IBB) and the United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry of the United States and Canada (UA), and is recognized as the designated Union to represent non-destructive testing and field heat treatment technicians across Canada.

The two organizations determined that these specially trained and highly skilled technicians had a unique interest and it was determined that they would be best represented independently of the affiliate union so the Quality Control Council of Canada was created. While QCC members retain the rights and privileges of both organizations, they are encouraged to participate in the activities of their home locals and lodges; in many ways they benefit from the resources of both organizations. The QCC membership is strong, is growing rapidly with approximately 3,000 members across Canada (January 2011) and has also served to build strong relations between the UA and IBB and to benefit all of our members.
