The Chicago Sisterhood of Carpenters is a proud affiliate of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America’s Sisters in the Brotherhood. Every day, thousands of women play a critical role in making the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America the best union in North America. Sisters in the Brotherhood (SIB) supports female members by providing assistance in obtaining craft training and leadership skills; by being advocates on women issues; and by mentoring new members and even potential members.
SIB conferences offer opportunities to network and participate in workshops that expose women to UBC history and develop skills to become more active within the union. SIB events, meetings, and resources, both local and online, offer substantive support for women members in every Council. SIB encourages women to participate in training, develop their skills and job performance, and value productivity and leadership. With those efforts, today’s Sisters in the Brotherhood is building a better trade and a stronger, more effective UBC.
