Who Is Building Your Future?

“The best way to predict your future is to create it” — Abraham Lincoln

Dear Brothers and Sisters:
I am happy to report that several markets are presenting opportunities for us to capture additional market share. Our Council’s strategic goals focus on scaffolding, interior systems, and healthcare construction, and we are pulling out all the stops to sign contractors, secure PLAs or contracts, and train our members in the skills they need to excel in these hot industries. At that same time, we are leveraging every opportunity to win work in our more traditional fields such as floorcovering, trade shows, pile driving, heavy form, millwork and more.

I pledge to you that your Council staff will do everything in our power to secure steady work for all of you, and to bolster our membership with new carpenters and pile drivers so that we can staff any job our employers win.

But make no mistake — the person who is truly building your future is yourself. We can set-up multiple work opportunities, but it’s you and your brothers and sisters who must be ready to act when the opportunity surfaces. How can you do that? Be involved. Any journeyman or 3 rd year apprentice who completed their leadership training will tell you about a concept they learned, which is crucial to your own success:

“If it’s going to be, it’s up to me.”

Take control of your career and become an active Union member. Use this website as your guide to opportunities to better your skills, your leadership talents, and your union citizenship. If you do so, we look forward to watching your career takeoff!

Yours in Solidarity,
Jason B. Engels, CEO/EST
