Become a Member

Most members join our Union through an apprenticeship. As an apprentice you will earn while you learn, getting paid for every hour you work while you are learning your trade. Apprentices follow a formal, rigorous course of training, both on the job and in the classroom. Upon completion of your apprenticeship, you will have the training, wages, benefits and respect that only a union job can provide.

All new members must take a skill evaluation, pay an initiation fee, and are placed at a wage level and status based on experience and ability. Depending on experience, you may be placed in our apprenticeship program; at the very least, you will be encouraged to take specific training classes to fill gaps in your experience and to gain required certifications.

The Carpenters Union and apprenticeships are open to all. We do not discriminate based on race, color, creed, national origin, gender, marital status, age, sexual orientation, veteran status, disability or status with regard to public assistance.
