Member Union Participating Program (MUP)

 

The Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters Member Union Participation Program is a Council-wide effort to make a real impact in our communities and strengthen our union. It’s a commitment to harness our collective power and bring back the idea of the “Community Carpenter”. Providing real actions that shine a light on how impactful having union carpenters live and work in our communities is.

What can you do to help your community and union?


  • Use your skills with other carpenters to build for those in need
  • Organize with your union brothers and sisters to help turn a job
  • Knock on doors for a political candidate or cause to strengthen the union
  • Give back to your community through road clean-ups, food drives, and more
  • Continue your service to the community as a volunteer first responder
  • Serve your community as a member of a zoning or school board
  • Continue your training as a career carpenter through Journeyman Upgrades at your local training center

For a full listing of MUP activities, please call your MUP Hotline.
