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 140-year history, we lead the way in training, educating, and representing the next generation of skilled construction professionals. Learn more about UBC below.
With more than 135-years of experience in the construction industry, we recognize that our continued success depends on continuing to be a model 21st century union—one with a laser focus on providing unmatched support for our members, highly skilled tradespeople for our contractors, and leadership for the industry.
The United Brotherhood of Carpenters prides itself on being a democratic organization. Members elect their leaders, and each member has a say in how the UBC is operated and governed.
The United Brotherhood of Carpenters understands that keeping up with today’s construction industry means adapting its workforce to reflect the needs of our contractors and their customers. Attention to workforce development permeates the Brotherhood, with programs meant to cultivate interest in a UBC career from military veterans, women, minorities, and today’s youth.
