THE WORK WE DO
WE ARE THE CARPENTERS UNION
Being in the Carpenters Union means power in unity and strength in numbers — locally and across the nation.
The North Central States Regional Council of Carpenters represents nearly 27,000 union members and their families from 46 local unions in Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
We are chartered by the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners — one of North America’s first unions, and still one of its most vibrant. The UBC represents more than half of a million Carpenters, Floor Coverers, Lathers, Millwrights, Pile Drivers and Industrial workers in the United States and Canada.
As a union, we are dedicated to protecting and elevating the economic and social condition of all workers. We partner with contractors to provide our industry with the best trained, most productive and safest workforce available. The superior productivity and skills that our members bring to the job reward us with pay and benefits that allow us to provide a better life for ourselves, our families and our communities now and in the future.
SEEKING EXPERIENCED CARPENTERS
Work hours are at a peak level in many areas of our Council. Please share our recruitment form - www.getbetterwages.org - with friends, family members and acquaintances who might be interested in becoming union carpenters. Or, visit our job board. We are specifically looking for experienced carpenters in concrete and scaffolding in some areas, and wood and metal framers in others. Apprentice-level carpenters are invited to fill out the form as well. Thank you!
