The Sisters in the Brotherhood’s mission is to create a network of active Sisters who will promote the values of leadership, strength, and unity within the labor movement. Our valuable mentoring network will provide you with the tools to be confident and successful in a highly competitive industry. We advocate for more involvement from Sisters in all levels of union leadership and activities because when women work, we all benefit.
Our .300 Hitters program was developed by the UBC to give our journeymen a broader understanding of our union, the construction industry and our membership’s role in shaping the future in the years ahead. This program is a once in a lifetime opportunity for members to tour our state-of-the-art International Training Center (ITC), meet other carpenters from all over the country, and most importantly, learn valuable skills they need to help build a stronger union.
Local unions should be made up of local people. At the NRCC, we are working each day to make this a reality in cities across the Northeast like Philadelphia, Newark, Jersey City, Camden and Baltimore. In 2017, we announced the formation of "Shades of the Trades," a committee that will help us to increase the recruitment and retention of people of color and women in our Union.
