Adding new brothers and sisters to our organization is essential to the success of SWRCC. However, when building for success in the future, it’s vital to start with a good foundation and understanding of the past. More than 75% of individuals joining our organization are Latina/Latino, and unfortunately are not as aware of the history and goals of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters. Knowing our traditions and values is key to being Union Proud. This committee will focus on educating our Latina/Latino brothers and sisters about the UBC’s past and how it affects their future, giving them the knowledge necessary to become proud Union carpenters.
