RESPONSIBILITY AS MEMBERS
As Carpenters, we follow a long tradition of craftsmanship and take great pride in our many crafts. Our livelihood as individuals and our success as a Union are dependent upon our ability to provide partners with well-trained, qualified and motivated workers. The industry standards are high because we set the standard for workmanship, safety, quality and professionalism.
Being a union Carpenter is more than a job or a career. It is a partnership with your fellow brothers and sisters to build skills on the job and in your life. Being a Carpenter is an opportunity to do more, learn more and put yourself on the path to the American Dream – one filled with endless potential, opportunity and wealth.
It requires commitment, leadership, passion and energy to always be learning the next skill, supporting your fellow members and leading change in your Local and community. The PNWRCC provides the training and opportunity for you to succeed with the responsibility to be engaged with the union, partners and community.
All working people have the right to: 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. However with rights come responsibility: being productive, efficient workers, producing the highest quality of work, improving our communities, helping fellow workers achieve safety and security in the workplace, and being active citizens and informed voters.
Our success is helping our brothers and sisters to understand their rights to dignity, a fair wage and the opportunity to practice our craft with skill and safety. We listen to each other’s needs, understand their fears and offer support and pride of our Brotherhood. We are proud members of the PNWRCC.
