WE ARE THE CARPENTERS UNION
The North Central States Regional Council of Carpenters represents more than 18,000 union members and their families from 28 local unions in Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
The North Central States Regional Council of Carpenters is chartered by the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners — one of North America’s first unions, and still one of its most vibrant. The UBC represents more than half of a million Carpenters, Floor Coverers, Lathers, Millwrights, Pile Drivers and Cabinet Makers in the United States and Canada.
Being in the Carpenters Union means power in unity and strength in numbers — locally and across the nation.
As a union, we are dedicated to protecting and elevating the economic and social condition of all workers. We partner with contractors to provide our industry with the best trained, most productive and safest workforce available. The superior productivity and skills that our members bring to the job reward us with pay and benefits that allow us to provide a better life for ourselves, our families and our communities now and in the future.
In the past year, the NCSRCC has conducted several Telephone Town Hall forums with its members. To date, the topics of these telephone town halls have centered on contract negotiations and pension issues.
In a telephone town hall, members are auto-dialed a day in advance of the actual teleconference. They are told about the time, date and topic of the upcoming town hall, so they can make plans if they wish to be near a telephone and participate. This information is also shared with members for whom we have email addresses.
Although the Council is able to auto-dial your home phone number, it is not allowed - by law - to dial your cell phone number unless we have express consent. In past telephone town halls, the Council allowed members to call from their cell phones if they wished to participate in the call.
Unfortunately, when members call in to the number, as compared to when the Council auto-dials out, the cost nearly doubles. Therefore, in a concerted effort to spend member money wisely, the Council hopes to get consent to auto-dial your cell phone. To give express consent, fill out a form at www.northcountrycarpenter.org/cell-authorization.php.
You can be assured the Council will not sell your private cell phone number for any reason. Additionally, it is important to note these telephone town halls only happen a few times a year - we promise the Council will not call you weekly or even monthly. We know you value your time at home with family and friends.
