This is the principle on which out Brotherhood will enter into and grow in the 21st century. Every Local Council, District, and International staff member, regardless of position, must be an organizer in spirit and action. Every member must be an organizer too. Our union and the future of our crafts are in our hands to build strong and proud. We will build them by organizing all who share our trade, pride, and skill that come with being a unionist. Organizing is not a job that comes naturally. We all need to learn the basic skills to be organizers. Those skills are rooted in interpersonal communication skills: contacting workers; listening to worker needs; persuading workers that they have rights to dignity, safety, and a good wage; and supporting workers as they develop the confidence to stand up together to demand fair standards of work and wages from their employers.

"We are all organizers."
Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters - Organizing
What We Stand For
Since 1881 Our Objectives Are:
We organize for Collective Bargaining Strength in an effort to influence the Construction Market, so we can negotiate a higher standard for all construction workers. Organizing enables the Union to win better wages and benefits for our membership. Then we and our families may thrive and we can retire with dignity after a career in the construction field.
What is "Area Standard" and why is it important?
Area Standard is the wage and benefit package established by working carpenters. The UBC has defined area standards since it was established in 1881. In order to grow as an industry, we ALL need to protect these area standards.
