Welcome to the 15 new UBC wood framers!

The PNWRCC Delegates were treated to a short talk on the wood framing industry. Durning the presentation 15 new UBC members were introduced and met with a standing ovation from the delegation. These wood framers spent the morning discussing the industry in which they came from, which was ripe with low pay, payroll fraud, and working conditions that were less than desirable. This morning was further proof that the NW Carpenters Union was true to its mission to stand up for all working carpenters, and to protect our craft. We welcome the 15 new wood framers to our Union, and look forward to working with you to further improve the wood framing industry.
