The CARPENTER Magazine

The CARPENTER magazine has gone all-digital!


The Carpenter, now known as Carpenter magazine, began in 1881 as a monthly publication produced by the UBC to inform all dues-paying members of newsworthy events within the union. While the frequency of the publication has slowly decreased over the years, UBC’s website continues to grow and has become an additional go-to source for member stories, news, and union information.

As always, the magazine includes coverage of UBC councils, programs, and members, but now we’ve added interactive links to more photos and video content! With an all-digital magazine, we use our resources well by saving on printing and postage costs. The UBC continues to publish the Carpenter once a year, making it one of the oldest continuously published magazines in North America.

To read the latest issue of the Carpenter, please follow this link to the UBC’s website - https://www.carpenters.org/resource-hub/carpenter-magazine/

The Carpenter magazine is automatically sent to all active members that have opted in to receive it. To ensure you continue to receive notice of future editions of the Carpenter, please be sure to provide us with a valid email address.
