working men and women in the Nutmeg State. We strive to make a positive
difference not only in the lives of our members but also in the
communities where we reside and work. We are a 100% voluntary union that believes a living wage & good working conditions benefit everyone by strengthening the middle class which, in turns, helps to keep our local and national economies prosperous.

RALLY July 31, 2014 in New HavenOn Thursday the 31st at 3:30 pm we will be having a rally at the corner of Church and Elm. We will be demonstrating against a contractor that received a Stop Work
Order from the state of CT DoL. We want the owners/developers to honor
the assurances and promises they made to Mayor De’Stefano hire locally
and pay community standard rates. We hope you will turn out for this rally and since parking is limited we suggest that you carpool to the rally.
The collapse in the financial
market is finally behind us. We are currently securing jobs throughout the
state and we are on the right track to putting our members back to work.
Representatives and Officers of the Carpenters Union are working hard
campaigning to be a positive force for economic change in America and we still
need your help. As a union member, you have a voice and the ability to make a
difference in your trade as well as in your local communities. The Union
Participation Program (UPP) has proven to be successful in getting our members
involved. It’s been great to see such a presence at so many events across
the state, and it is making a difference! Please continue to let your
voice be heard and stay active. Stay involved!
Being a union member not only
enables you to make a decent wage and provide important benefits for yourself
and your family, such as medical care and a comfortable retirement, but it also
ensures your human right to work with dignity and respect.
Representatives of the Carpenters Union are trained to represent you and
protect your rights, your health and your safety on the job.
Carpenters Union encourages all members to be masters of their crafts.
As such, all of our valued members are able to consistently renew and
enhance their skills through the apprentice training program and journeyman upgrading classes.
We encourage you to get involved with your local union, attend
meetings and get to know your union representatives, so that you can
play an active role in moving our country forward.
