Southeastern Carpenters

Sisters in the Brotherhood

Together we are stronger!

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.

Signing Sign

It is no different for us here in the Southeastern USA. Professional craftswomen are in every area of the trade and the union. We are foremen, superintendents and lead instructors. On job sites, we are skilled carpenters performing work as scaffolders, pile drivers, floor layers, drywallers, framers, concrete formers, and more.

Sisters are indeed helping to build Today’s UBC throughout their work with the Southeastern Carpenters Regional Council.

Our Council’s Sisters in the Brotherhood program 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 potential members.

SIB conferences offer opportunities to network and participate in workshops 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.
