Carpenters’ Bill of Rights and Responsibilities

The Carpenters’ Bill of Rights and Responsibilities is simple, direct and fair.

Our Bill of Rights says: Here’s what we believe. Here’s what we stand for. Here are the basic rights of every working carpenter – union and non-union.

But with rights come responsibilities – and no one knows that better than we do. We know that it is the responsibility of every carpenter to provide a good day’s work and to produce a craftsman’s product in return.

All working people have a right to:

With rights come responsibilities:

  • A good job with benefits
  • A living wage that can support a family
  • Security and dignity in work and retirement
  • A safe and secure workplace
  • Education and training to reach our full potential
  • Being productive, efficient workers
  • Producing work of the highest quality – work that we stand behind
  • Improving our communities
  • Helping fellow workers achieve safety and security in the workplace
  • Being active citizens and informed voters
