In his 43 years of UBC membership, Brother Morin has passed along a wealth of experience and wisdom to the younger generations of carpenters, teaching them the right way – the union way – and taking pride in their work.
Morin, a third-generation carpenter, followed his father’s advice and joined the Brotherhood in 1980.
“If you’re going to do this, do it right,” he recalls his father saying. And that’s exactly what he did – just shy of 85,000 man-hours, the time has come for Carpenters Local 336 Brother Morin to hang up his boots and enjoy a well-earned retirement.
Morin worked for several companies during his first ten years in the union until he found a home with Fontaine Bros where he spent the last 33 years as part of the multi-generation family-owned company in Massachusetts.
“I never looked back. This company and the union gave me some great opportunities and I made the most of them,” said Morin.
Local 336 staff and the leadership team of Fontaine Bros. made a trip to the job site to say a special farewell and commend Jim on his exceptional career. Local 336 Business Representative Charlie Payne presented Jim with a UBC jacket, and David Fontaine Sr. and David Fontaine Jr. thanked Jim for his hard work, commitment, and professionalism throughout the years while reminiscing and sharing fond memories together.
Morin spoke about the good life he built in the trade while he and his wife raised their two sons. He added that his eldest son received a scholarship from the union, and shared how proud he was of both of them.
We wish you a very Happy Retirement Brother, and thank you for your many years of hard work and dedication to the union and the industry!
