Every day, thousands of women play a critical role in making the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America the best union in North America.
UBC women are in every area of the trade and the union: as foremen, superintendents and lead instructors; on the staff of Councils and locals; and, of course, on jobsites–as carpenters on all kinds of projects, millwrights fine-tuning turbines, pile drivers, floor layers, and mill-cab and industrial workers.
Sisters in the Brotherhood supports female members by providing assistance in obtaining craft training and leadership skills; by being advocates on women’s issues; and by mentoring new members and even potential members. SIB events, meetings, and resources, both local and online, offer substantive support for women members in every Council.
SIB encourages women to participate in training, develop their skills and job performance, and value productivity and leadership. With those efforts, today’s Sisters in the Brotherhood is building a better trade and a stronger, more effective UBC.
