The organization represents and campaigns for the rights of plumbers, pipefitters and HVAC technicians from Lansing to Jackson to Battle Creek.

“Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 333 is proud to stand with and endorse Mayor Andy Schor for re-election to the city’s top job. As pipefitters, it’s our job to know when something fits in the right place, and we believe Mayor Schor fits the role of Mayor well. It has been great to work with him, and we are excited for another productive four years in Lansing,” said Price Dobernick, the Business Manager for the labor union.
