Good Union Concept

Good Union Leadership Means:

  • BELIEF – in the merits and purpose of unionism, and in the Brotherhood.
  • RESPONSIBILITY – Willingness to meet the daily obligations of being a member.
  • PARTICIPATION – Willingness to give personal time and energy in service to the union.
  • LOYALTY – Pride in being a part of the union; commitment to the Brotherhood and to each other.

Transformational Leadership

“Being a transformational leader is far more than a title – it’s having the right skills, attitude, and focus to bring about large scale change, and I feel nearly all UBC carpenters have this potential. To be a leader in this sense takes more than potential alone – it takes hard work, dedication, and a strong commitment to reach your full capabilities.”

– Douglas J. McCarron, General President

Constructive Culture

The UBC actively promotes a constructive culture on the jobsite, where members value and motivate one another to achieve their highest potential and ensure maximum productivity.
