With reliable work, good pay, and quality benefits, union carpenters and contractors provide New Yorkers like me and my family with the means to live comfortably in a city where it is increasingly difficult to do so.
Good jobs are essential to keeping New York an affordable place for working people to live.
What if I told you, you could make a good income, receive quality healthcare benefits, retire with a pension, and have a meaningful, exciting career, all without getting a college degree or going into debt for your education? In New York’s unionized construction industry, it’s possible.
Working in construction has inherent risks built in, so I appreciate the lengths that union carpenters and contractors take to prioritize safety – from mandatory training for all members to having trained shop stewards on job site.
When I started my journey to become a union carpenter four and a half years ago, I didn’t know how much I would come to love my job.
Union carpenters and contractors have a simple goal – to provide hardworking New Yorkers in the construction industry with safe jobs and quality benefits that result in healthy futures for themselves and their families.
