Local 597 Chicago Pipefitters Union Partners with Lifting Gear Hire

The Local 597 Pipefitters Union training facility in Chicago and Lifting Gear Hire Corp. (LGH), Bridgeview, Ill., have a formed new partnership. The partnership outlines an annual rental contract pilot program that secures rigging for the Local 597 Pipefitter Union’s advanced industrial rigging classes until the end of 2012. In addition, LGH has the privilege of having their logo permanently affixed to the wall at the Local 597 Pipefitters Union training facility. The logo defines the partnership between LGH, the UA, and the Local 597 Pipefitters Union while increasing daily exposure to approximately 7,000 pipefitters that train at the center.
