Contractors

 

Our signatory contractors have access to the most qualified and highly trained Interior Systems Carpenters in the region. 

It is a statistical fact that a union worker is a safer worker. The reason for this is that a unionized work force is better trained, higher skilled and held to a higher standard. Not only does this offer the moral and ethical rewards of knowing your employees are going home to their families each night, but it has the added bonus of being better for your bottom line. 

We offer flexibility

Local 2041 has over 900 qualified Interior Systems Apprentices and Carpenters at your disposal. You can hire an employee for a week or a decade, depending on the needs of your project. We ensure you receive a highly skilled, safe working and qualified worker. 

Training

As part of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners (UBC), training is our priority. Our members receive the most up to date health and safety training. You can rest assured that when you hire one of our members, they will have the skills and experience to get the job done on time and on budget.
