Efforts To Recruit More Veterans Into Our Union

The meeting to help us recruit more veterans

The Carpenters union is proud to have among its membership many veterans of the United States military. Their work ethic, determination and professionalism benefits their Brothers and Sisters as well as our partner employers.

Today, union leaders, staff and a few members met with Margarita Devlin, the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Operations and Management at the U.S. Department of Labor, Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) and a handful of other state and federal officials who work on veteran employment issues.

The meeting will begin to help us recruit more veterans into our union and help those veterans take advantage of their military benefits. Local 327 member John Lewis helped arrange the meeting. He’s current working as Assistant State Director for DOL-VETS.

Thanks to Air Force Veteran Ziven Drake, who is NASCTF assistant training director, for playing a leading role in the meeting and for other NASRCC staff who are veterans and participated in the meeting, including Charlie Payne, Derek Adamiec, Paul Vilela and John Dunderdale.
