Batter-Up! Local 743 steps to the plate to lend a hand at Cal State Bakersfield.
This weekend Union Carpenters helped relocate a fence for the Cal State University Bakersfield Roadrunners baseball team. A dozen Carpenters came out Saturday to help with the first phase of this project to help expand the team’s bullpen. The much-needed upgrade will be a welcome improvement to CSU Bakersfield athletics and will serve future athletes from the community into the foreseeable future.

Get it Got it Campaign Launched in WA
Our brothers and sisters in Washington launched the “Get it Got it” Campaign aimed at showing the Associated General Contractors of Washington that we mean business. The AGC is standing in the way of our Carpenters getting the increased pension and wages that they need. Every employer association in the area has agreed that our Carpenters deserve better, yet the AGC is holding up the contract. We are standing together to tell the AGC that we will fight for our brothers and sisters until they stop stalling progress, and we demand that they sign the agreement immediately.
