We’re excited to welcome and introduce everyone to the new representatives who’ve joined our Northwest Carpenters Union team in the last month.


Industrial members were faced with a new face mask policy that banned union insignia—our members knew their rights and worked with NWCU representatives to protect them.


NWCU has established its first-ever Relief Fund for qualified members who experienced loss or damage of property, or displacement due to the 2020 Wildfires and also for members who lost wages as a result of COVID-19.


Get ready for some late summer fun! Join us for the Veterans in the Brotherhood Paintball Battle on August 28th at Splat Action Paintball in Molalla, OR.
