The Carpenters Industrial Council is no longer in operation.
All local unions formerly affiliated with the CIC are now affiliated with the regional council in their area.

The Carpenters Industrial Council (CIC) was chartered July 1, 2006 by the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America. The CIC was formed after the merger of four Regional Industrial Councils -the Carpenters East Coast Industrial Council, the Midwestern Council of Industrial Workers, the Southern Council of Industrial Workers, and the Western Council of Industrial Workers.

The principal activity of the CIC is to develop and maintain a unified membership program to improve compensation benefits, safety and work-related issues. Additionally, the Council works diligently with unrepresented workers who wish to organize so that they too can enjoy the benefits of having a voice in their workplace.

"It is an honor and a privilege to be serving the members of the Carpenters Industrial Council as Executive Secretary Treasurer.

Thank you for all that you do out there on the job every day, because we all know that the working American is the true heart of this nation, and we are the ones that make this Country run. And we know that if things are going to get better, we have to make them better. So let’s commit to do what we do best – EDUCATE, AGITATE, ORGANIZE!"
