Carpenters Union benefits are among the best in the industry.
Signatory contractors can access the contractor database.
“After hearing about the training, pay and benefits, I knew right away that I wanted to join the union and be part of the Brotherhood. I signed up that week,” he says.
The apprenticeship program lived up to all of his expectations, providing him top-class training while he earned a paycheck and benefits. It’s part of the reason he’s now a part-time instructor at the Burlington training center.
Tyler Green joined the Carpenters union in Vermont when he was 25 years old, following a talk with now retired Business Agent Matt Durocher at a nonunion site.
“I loved everything about the apprenticeship, and I’m grateful to be on the other side now, teaching the next generation of skilled union carpenters.”
In addition to instructing, Tyler has taken other leadership roles within the union, as a steward and a delegate to the regional council. He’s currently at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire, building a $130 million expansion patient tower.
“It’s a five-story building, but that’s pretty big for around here, and it’s really great to be part of it,” he said.
He’s also proud to be an active member of volunteer work the union does and his role as a delegate.
“I believe you’ve got to give back, so being a committed member and advocating for the union and its members feels good to me,” he says. “It’s an honor to have been elected to this role.”
