The United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America leads the way in training, educating, and representing the next generation of skilled construction professionals. We equip our professional craftsmen with skills that are demanded in today’s construction industry.
A message from the General President, the UBC turns 140, adapting to COVID-19 and stories of members in action.
Increasing the skills of United Brotherhood of Carpenters’ (UBC) members and enabling them to do their very best work on the job is the Carpenters International Training Funds’ (CITF) top priority. The CITF considers skill, safety, productivity, and attitude to be the keys to success for UBC members and business partners.
The United Brotherhood of Carpenters’ (UBC) Department of Education & Training (DET) is the architect behind training UBC employees and members as they develop the necessary skills to be successful on and off the jobsite. The DET is a critical element of the UBC, as it aligns education, training, and development of its members and employees with the mission, vision, and strategic priorities of the Brotherhood.
The UBC represents one trade with many crafts. Our members touch every aspect of a construction project from foundation to finish; they’re frequently the first on the job and the last to leave. UBC carpenters build houses, skyscrapers, hospitals, bridges, and more, in all cases providing the skill and experience that can only be developed with union training.
With over half a million members and over 450 Local Unions across Canada and the U.S., today’s UBC has simplified our structure so you can contact our administrative and business staff easily–whoever and wherever you may be.
