Black History Month
As a Council, we pride ourselves on the diversity of our membership. It’s what makes the foundation of our Brotherhood so strong. We applaud the strides that many of our Brothers and Sisters are making in the industry today. We are proud of the impact our Carpenters are making on and off the jobsite, doing your part to shape the next generation of Union Carpenters. Happy Black History Month!
Brothers Keeper on ABC 7
This past week ABC 7 featured the Brother’s Keeper pre-apprenticeship program on their Solutions Segment. They visited the Brothers Keeper Bootcamp, where attendees were tested in various skills stations learning hard and soft skills that help assess their effort and desire for a career in construction. The Brothers Keeper program is a valuable resource for disadvantaged communities, who may not be aware of the opportunities available to them in the Carpenter trade. Thank you to the Bootcamp participants and to ABC 7 for coverage.

Heavy Hitters Meeting
Local 1912 hosted their first Heavy Hitters Meeting of the year. Union Carpenters filled the hall in Heavy Hitters shirts. SWMSRCC leaders were in attendance along with Arizona Sherriff Paul Penzone. Heavy Hitters Meetings are one of the key critical gatherings in the Southwest Mountain States. Apprentices, Journeymen, Stewards, Foremen, and others meet to discuss pressing topics and consider options to further strengthen our Union. Heavy Hitter meetings are a space where everyone on the jobsite has the space to make themselves heard.
