THE UNITED BROTHERHOOD OF CARPENTERS

AND JOINERS OF AMERICA REPRESENTS

More than a half-million

men & women who perform safe,

productive work every day.

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.

Here We Grow Again

As the UBC continues to grow and reflect upon our mission, major renovations were put into place at the member-owned International Training Center (ITC) facility.

Carpenter magazine has gone all digital!

As always, we include coverage of UBC councils, programs, and members, but now we’ve added interactive links to more photos and video content! With an all digital magazine, we use our resources well by saving printing and postage costs.

Our Training

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.

Developing Leaders

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.

Mission

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.

Activism

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.
