As an apprentice with the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America (UBC), you are part of an organization whose first leaders shaped the labor movement in the United States more than a century ago. Building on that tradition, we give you the tools to be the very best at your trade today by offering the finest training facility anywhere, backed by the commitment of your Union and its contractors.
