It began in 1881, when 36 carpenters from 11 cities formed a national union with a constitution, a structure, and 2,000 members. From humble beginnings arose a powerful political and economic force, setting the standards for wages, benefits, conditions, and quality on every project in the U.S. Much has changed in a century, but growth still rests on reaching out and opening doors to all working carpenters.
The official emblem of the UBC was adopted at the Forth General Convention in Cincinnati, Ohio, August 1884.
The motto inscribed "Labor Omnia Vincit," translated from Latin means "Labor Conquers All Things."
