Amendments to the UBC Constitution 2020

January 14th, 2021

On August 22, 2020, the UBC held its 42nd General Convention from a virtual platform, broadcast to more than 1,350 delegates who were participating at 24 locations across the U.S. and Canada. Our convention delegates deserve our thanks for stepping up to participate in this year’s unusual but very productive convention.

As we continue to face some of the steepest challenges in decades, delegates renewed the UBC’s commitment to fighting for area standard wages and benefits, engaging in political action at all levels for Carpenter issues, and providing the education and training programs that make the UBC the undisputed industry leader.
