WHO WE ARE Who We Are

Membership Association We are the only plumbing industry association for South Australia and the Northern Territory. Master Plumbers represents excellence in the plumbing and gasfitting trades at both state and national levels.

Group Training Organisation We employ apprentices and place them with plumbing employers for on-the-job experience.

Ongoing Support for Businesses and Apprentices We provide technical advice and discounts on further training, business services and events.

Our Mission To promote the on-going protection of community, health and safety through the provision of quality plumbing services both state and federal, and representation throughout South Australia.

03


OUR PURPOSE We’re dedicated to supporting licensed plumbing contractors and keeping our industry strong. We speak and act on behalf of our members, representing business owners who collectively employ and train thousands of skilled workers.

OUR HISTORY As an association, we have been representing excellence in the plumbing and gas fitting trades for over 100 years. A Master Plumber evolved from a journeyman (tradesman) to a Master only after completion of additional training and experience, and was then able to employ journeymen and apprentices. The Master Plumbers Association in South Australia was formed in 1908 as a united body of these employers established to negotiate with the industry union. This role remained largely unchanged for 80 years, until the introduction of Enterprise Bargaining Agreements. In adapting to this new world, our industrial relations role was significantly reduced, and our association adapted by focusing on member support. Today, Master Plumbers SA is a not-for-profit Membership Association and Group Training Organisation (GTO).

Membership Milestone Awards Master Plumbers SA Apprentice High Achievement Award Master Plumbers Work Health & Safety Award Master Plumbers Most Outstanding Apprentice Award The Jack Holder Gold Medal Award


JACK HOLDER MEDAL Our Jack Holder medal is the highest honour our apprentices can achieve. John ‘Jack’ Holder was a plumbing industry leader and former President of the Master Plumbers Association of SA between 1971-1973. Jack was also the former President of the Master Plumbers Federation of Australia, Institute of Plumbing Australia and the South Australian Building Industry Specialist Contractor Association., respectively. Jack joined the Army in 1942. At the completion of the war, it took the army until May 1946 to discharge Jack after which he finished his apprenticeship and become a fully fledged plumber. In 1952, he started his own business as a master plumber and general builder. He received an Order of Australia Medal in 2012 for his service to the building and construction industry, to professional organisations and to the community of Noarlunga. Previously known as the MPA Gold Medal, we renamed the award in his honour in 2021. Nominations for the Jack Holder Medal are from registered training organisations PEER and TAFE SA, and finalists are interviewed on their technical knowledge by a panel. 29
