The United Brotherhood of Carpenters & Joiners of America consists of more than 500,000 highly-skilled men and women throughout the building-trades industries in North America.

UBC Local 283 represents over 1,000 Carpenters, Pile Drivers and Scaffold Builders in Georgia and South Carolina.

We strive to obtain the best wages and benefits for those we represent.  To do this, we need to provide the most productive workers in the industry.  We believe that if a job is worth doing, it is worth doing right.

The first ingredient in a quality job is Skilled and Qualified Craftsmen.

We accomplish this through our Apprenticeship and Journeyman upgrading programs.

As our industry changes, we will change with it keeping abreast of the latest technological advancements and providing our contractors with the ability to stay competitive in the industry.

Local 283 was chartered April 15, 1899.  Our charter was signed by Peter J.  McGuire, Organizer of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and founder of Labor Day, in 1881.
