The United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America began in 1881, when 36 carpenters from 11 cities formed a national union with a constitution, a structure and two thousand members. From humble beginnings arose a powerful political and economic force, setting the standards for wages, benefits, conditions and quality on every project in the U.S. Much has changed in a century, but growth still rests on reaching out and opening doors to all working carpenters. The Charter for Local #43 was issued on April 18, 1883.
