THE UNITED BROTHERHOOD OF CARPENTERS
The United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America leads the way in training, educating, and representing the next generation of skilled construction professionals. We equip our professional craftsmen with skills that are demanded in today’s construction industry.
The UBC applauds the decision of the U.S. Department of Labor to rescind the Trump Administration’s Joint Employer Rule. This rule, which hurt workers, ignored decades of case law and was unsupported by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), was struck down in federal court last year for similar reasons.
Increasing the skills of United Brotherhood of Carpenters’ (UBC) members and enabling them to do their very best work on the job is the Carpenters International Training Funds’ (CITF) top priority. The CITF considers skill, safety, productivity, and attitude to be the keys to success for UBC members and business partners.
The United Brotherhood of Carpenters’ (UBC) Department of Education & Training (DET) is the architect behind training UBC employees and members as they develop the necessary skills to be successful on and off the jobsite. The DET is a critical element of the UBC, as it aligns education, training, and development of its members and employees with the mission, vision, and strategic priorities of the Brotherhood.
The United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America (UBC) is one of North America’s largest building trades unions, with over a half-million members. With pride in our more than 135-year history, we strive for job fairness and family-sustaining wages and benefits.
The United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America (UBC) encourages its more than half a million members to be active participants in the political process through voting, volunteering, and supporting candidates who fight for the goals of working people, promote needed infrastructure investments, and support fair trade.
