Speak Up! Take Action!
Stand Up for Your Union Values
Our founder, Peter J. McGuire coined our rally cry, “Organize, Agitate, Educate”. We do this on the Jobsite and in our communities all the time, but we can also simply “Organize, Agitate, Educate” from our phones or computers. It is as easy as adding your name. The Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters is committed to making sure policymakers know where we stand on the issues. The more of our members that add their names to our causes the more elected officials on the local, state, and national levels take notice. Please help us and look into helping with our issue-based campaigns below.
Stop Tax Fraud Now! (Regional)
Everyone is a victim of Tax Fraud. Vulnerable workers, the local taxpayers, honest contractors, and our local treasuries suffer when unscrupulous contractors use tax fraud practices such as mis-classification, wage theft, and human trafficking to underbid legitimate contractors. We must speak out and ask for better enforcement to help our communities gain the fair wages and tax revenue our seniors, veterans, and students deserve. Click on the image and make your voice heard.
Amazon Why? (Virginia)
Arlington Virginia will soon be home to a massive Amazon Headquarters project. Unfortunately, our union has discovered that Amazon projects that are being worked on by unscrupulous contractors are utilizing labor brokers who are taking advantage of their workers.

Help Fund NJ Infrastructure! (Regional)
New Jersey is in desperate need of real investment in the infrastructure we use every day. Roads and bridges are old, unsafe and in need of replacement and repair. With the recent economic troubles due to the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus), now it is more important than ever to show support for future jobs for our union families. Help us make our collective voices heard, add your name in support!
