The Carpentry Trade Offers Individuals Who Love to Work With Their Hands an Opportunity to Have a Career They Will Enjoy.

The United Brotherhood of Carpenters (UBC) represents one trade with many crafts. Our members touch every aspect of a construction project; they’re frequently first on the job and the last to leave. Carpenters create commercial, residential, and institutional structures through the skill and experience that is established only by union training.

YOUR GATEWAY TO SUCCESS

ABOUT THE MID-AMERICA CARPENTERS REGIONAL COUNCIL

Carpenters make up the largest single group of skilled workers in the country. To be a carpenter is to be a member of one of the oldest and most respected trades in the world, and our varied work today stems from the many products that once were made entirely of wood.
