Southeastern Carpenters



Remembering Our Roots This Labor Day

On behalf of the Southeastern Carpenters Regional Council officers and staff, I wish all of our members and employers, and their families, a happy and safe Labor Day holiday.†

We are fortunate to have so many talented men and women working in the field and offices of our five-state Council. Labor Day is an excellent time to thank each and every one of you for your hard work and dedication all year long.

Did you know that the UBC and its first leader, Peter J. McGuire, are directly responsible for establishing Labor Day as a federal holiday? Thatís just one unique aspect of our great Union. At some point during this Labor Day weekend, please stop and take a look through our great Unionís history, which can be found,†here.

Happy Labor Day!

Yours in Solidarity,
Thomas H. Jenkins, EST, SECRC
