The Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters is a positive force in the political landscape. We are at the forefront of protecting the rights of working men and women. We work hard to ensure that they have good wages, benefits and safe working environments so that all carpenters have the opportunity and the means to provide for their families and ultimately retire with dignity and respect.
This is why the Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters is involved in politics. As a labor union representing nearly 40,000 members, the Carpenters union must serve as the united voice that protects our members and resolves workplace issues that affect our lives.
By being active in politics and staying in close contact with our politicians in the U.S. Senate, the House of Representatives and state legislatures, we maintain a direct line with lawmakers who can help us promote and defend the rights of workers. We also work to elect local, state and national leaders who will serve in positions that we support.
