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.

It is no different for us, Central South 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, scaffolders, pile drivers, floor layers, and mill-cab and industrial workers.

“THIS UNION HAS ALWAYS STOOD FOR FAIRNESS AND THE RIGHTS OF ALL WORKERS.”

— Douglas J. McCarron
UBC General President

Sisters are indeed helping to build Today’s UBC.

Sisters in the Brotherhood supports female members by providing assistance in obtaining craft training and leadership skills; by being advocates on women issues; and by mentoring new members and even potential members.

SIB conferences offer opportunities to network and participate in workshops that expose women to UBC history and develop skills to become more active within the union. SIB events, meetings, and resources, both local and online, offer substantive support for women members in every Council.
