Which Career Path is Right for Your Future?

The UBC represents one trade with many crafts. Our members touch every aspect of a construction project; they’re frequently first on the job and the last to leave. Carpenters create and maintain commercial, residential, institutional and industrial structures through the skill and experience that is established only by union training. Carpenters make up the largest single group of skilled workers in the country. To be a carpenter is to be a member of one of the oldest and most respected trades in the world, and our varied work today stems from the many products that once were made entirely of wood. Our members have vastly different skill sets, but they share the pride and commitment to excellence that comes with being part of the Brotherhood.

One Trade. Many Crafts.

Carpenters

Whether with concrete, exteriors, roofs, infrastructure, scaffolding, to the finest trim and finish work, Central South 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

“Precision” is the standard work product of Southern States Millwrights. These members consistently participate in training and skill-enhancement classes to become experts in the use of tools and instruments that they must master. A keen eye for the perfect fit is a primary asset for millwrights, having to sometimes work with specifications requiring tolerances to a thousandth of an inch. SSMRC millwrights perform mission-critical work in very diverse industries.
