Strong Alone. Unstoppable Together.

The Mid-America Carpenters Regional Council has become one of the largest regional labor unions in the country with a membership of more than 50,000 working men and women across Illinois, Missouri, Kansas and Eastern Iowa. Since 1881 our Regional Council has provided a foundation of skill-advancement training as a constant source of personal enrichment and career progression while improving the lives of its skilled members and their families. It is an honor and privilege to help develop and strengthen communities across the states in which we work, volunteer and live.
