Carpenters touch every aspect of a construction project; they’re frequently first on the job and the last to leave. Whether it's working with concrete, exteriors, roofs, infrastructure, scaffolding, or the finest trim and finish work, the United Brotherhood of Carpenters (UBC) carpentry professionals provide the crucial work on most every type of structure found in our world. From skyscrapers and hospitals to office buildings, prisons, schools, hotels, bridges, highways, infrastructure, and beyond, carpenters are responsible for bringing the blueprints for these structures to life.

Millwrights are construction professionals who work primarily with machinery and equipment requiring precision. Millwrights install, maintain, diagnose, and repair equipment such as compressors, pumps, conveyors, gas and steam turbines, monorails, and extruders.  “Precision” is the standard work product of UBC millwrights.  They can be found performing mission-critical work at coal, gas, nuclear, and alternative-energy power plants. Their skills are also vital in industries as diverse as automotive, aerospace, food processing, lumber, pulp and paper, material handling, mining, petrochemical, steel and alloys, pharmaceuticals, and mechanical construction.
