Industrial members are skilled professionals who craft fine woodwork, cabinetry, and décor in commercial, residential and retail structures. Cabinet makers and millworkers fabricate and install decorative and functional elements, including trim and molding, cabinetry, ceiling treatments, doors, windows, exposed columns and beams, display mantels, staircases and more.
Industrial workers value professionalism, productivity and solidarity. They take pride in being the best at what they do, with a focus on collaboration with employer partners based on mutual respect, a dedication to training, and a strong work ethic.
The principles of the North Central States Regional Council of Carpenters’ Industrial Workers are embedded in professionalism, productivity and solidarity. We pride ourselves on being the best at our profession. With mutual respect towards our employer partners, we express confidence in our work, exhibit dedication to training and present proper work ethic. We “own” our work, which is a mindset that shows, “When we are finished, we can put our name on it.”
Industrial workers bring positive change to work environments through solidarity, holding each other accountable and organizing around issues that benefit all employees. This practice builds strength, influence and confidence in our union. We empower co-workers to demonstrate a strong presence of solidarity on the shop floor and promote caring for one another on and off the worksite. This type of progressive unionism does not rely on grievances and conflict to build solidarity. On the contrary, it relies on worker empowerment. When we as workers believe in our value, we exhibit professionalism and safe work practices. This philosophy promotes our ability to work collaboratively with employers to ensure the highest quality product.
Our Local Unions are strongly encouraged to participate and support local communities. They play a vital and vibrant role in building strong supportive cities, towns and villages. We demonstrate leadership during community celebrations, times of benevolence and charitable events. Our solidarity extends from the shop floor to kitchen tables and the communities where we live.

“Unions have accomplished so many life changing things for the working class, none of which would have been accomplished without organizing. Organizing empowers people to make these significant changes. My goal is to organize solidarity in all the Industrial Locals and use that strength to make us a stronger union, creating a safer workplace and provide good, middle-class wages and benefits.”
