The Indiana Kentucky Ohio Regional Council of Carpenters advocates an environment where everyone can thrive to do their best. We are of various ethnic, gender, education, background, and social backgrounds. We can generate many new ideas when we are able to all work together. Without diversity in the workplace, we run the risk of becoming monoculture and only viewing things from a very limited perspective. The Indiana Kentucky Ohio Regional Council of Carpenters promotes a culture within our organization of diversity among all our workers. 



Helmets to Hard Hats

You put yourself on the line for your country. And we at the United Brotherhood of Carpenters are proud to be among the first to thank you by offering a rewarding and satisfying career via the UBC Helmets to Hardhats Partnership.

Helmets to hardhats helps military service members successfully transition back into civilian life by offering them the means to secure a quality career in the construction industry. This is a federally-approved apprenticeship program, meaning you can use your Montgomery G.I. Bill benefits to supplement your income.

Two organizations – one goal: Present great career choices for those who put their lives on hold to protect their homeland. The UBC’s Helmets to Hardhats program provides our nation’s military veterans with challenging careers in carpentry and a source of security for them and their family in the form of healthcare, retirement and financial stability.

Military veterans are familiar with a structured learning environment, unpredictable weather conditions, and desire to serve the community. Based on your military occupation code, you can leverage training and work related experience during your time in the service to achieve advanced placement in our apprenticeship program. With an honorable discharge, veterans can be working on a jobsite as soon as six weeks.

Sisters in the Brotherhood

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.
