Carpenters - A
Tradition of Quality - A Heritage of Strength
The Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters represents
over 65,000 union carpenters in six states. We are dedicated
to raising area standards for all carpenters in SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, NEVADA, ARIZONA, UTAH, NEW MEXICO and COLORADO.
Skill and productivity are the keys
to success as a carpenter and having access to experienced,
well-trained craftsmen and women is a key to success for
our contractors. To this end the Southwest Regional Council,
working in partnership with our union signatory employers,
spends more than $28 million every year to provide training
to our members. This training is provided through the Southwest
Carpenters Training Fund and their 19 state-of-the-art training
The Southwest Regional Council is proud to be affiliated
with the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of
America (UBC). The Southwest Regional Council is the largest
council in the Brotherhood and was formed over the years
through the consolidation of smaller district or state councils.
The large regional council structure provides greater flexibility
to members and employers, optimizes the use of resources and
helps to stabilize the market.
