Join Us

Do you want to develop great skills, work hard on every job, and, as a result, earn fair pay and respect? Do you have the drive and the can-do attitude to become a true construction professional? Then consider applying to become a member of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters.

The carpenters’ trade may include many different specialties and crafts, but when it comes to fighting for fair pay and respect, our efforts are always the same: the best. We play by the rules and expect others to do the same. We’re competitive by nature and strive to always be the best.

From top to bottom, we set the bar high and always watch each other’s back. Our members receive world-class training and are expected to give 100 percent on the job. We fight for our rights and contribute to our communities.

It is no different with our union. Across the United States and Canada, everything our Brotherhood does strives to help individual members succeed today while building a better future for tomorrow. We are still inspired by the solid foundation built over the course of our more than 135-year history and based on our founders’ original vision: a Brotherhood that represents members and trains carpenters for challenging, productive careers.
