A 21st-Century Union

The United Brotherhood of Carpenters is one of North America’s largest building-trades unions, with nearly a half-million members in the construction and wood-products industries.

We are leveraging our 130-year history to prepare for tomorrow by training, educating, and representing the next generation of construction professionals. Our mission is to stand strong for our signatory contractors and help them succeed in today’s marketplace by supplying them with motivated, knowledgable crews that demonstrate skills, productivity, and a strong work ethic every day.

We at the UBC know that these are the most challenging times our industry has faced. We know that to survive we must become the model of a 21st-century union—one with a laser focus on membership support, unmatched skills for our contractors, and a clear direction in leading the industry through this era.

This renewed online presence reflects our commitment to our contractors, our members, and the industry. Please take a moment to see how the UBC is standing strong—and building tomorrow.
