The United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America (UBC) recently affiliated 13 Local Unions of the Carpenters Industrial Council (CIC) with the PNWRCC.
Today we welcome the members of Local Unions 1017, 2761, 2197, 2750, 2767, 2780, 2784, 2949, 3091, 151, 2058, and 1136 to the Pacific Northwest!
A Council covering all 50 states, the CIC represented workers in industries such as plywood and cabinet manufacturing and mills. CIC members will be placed in Regional Councils based on their geographic location. The 4,000 members residing in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, and Wyoming will now be covered by the Pacific Northwest Regional Council (PNWRCC). PNWRCC’s principal officer, Executive Secretary-Treasurer Evelyn Shapiro is eager to welcome the new members. “The Carpenters Industrial Council members will find a warm welcome with the Pacific NW Council. It makes sense and we look forward to future opportunities in the industrial sector.
