Carpenters Brothers and Sisters:
A union membership means more than having a job. It means building a career. And to have a career means having the strength, protection and peace of mind of union benefits. Collective bargaining agreements (CBAs) and an experienced staff help empower and safeguard you in the workplace, day in and day out. Away from the job site, a union membership protects you and your family by delivering health care and retirement benefits. And a union membership provides a foundation of skill-advancement training as a constant source of personal enrichment and career progression.
The Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters prides itself on positioning members for success and helping them build careers. As a member in good standing with the Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters, you and your family are eligible to take advantage of some brand-new benefits.
Our ability to provide these benefits to you at no cost is the result of a coalition of unions that we have built and our collective purchasing power to drive down prices from benefit providers. In addition to the Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters this group—the Midwest Coalition of Labor—includes the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150, the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 399, the Laborers’ District Council of Chicago & Vicinity and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 134.
This coalition represents more than 100,000 working men and women across the Midwest. And as more unions join the Midwest Coalition of Labor, we will look to add additional members-only benefits. For more information, go to Midwest Coalition of Labor website click on the link.
The Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters commits to working in the best interests of our brotherhood, providing a foundation of support and protection for you and your families throughout your working careers and into your retirement.
