PLEDGE TO VOTE NOVEMBER 6

A lot is at stake in the 2018 election, making your vote vital. When you vote, you ensure our right to fair wages, on-the-job safety and good union jobs. By voting, you do your part to stop or reverse "right to work." Take the UBC's pledge to vote November 6 and look for the Council's list of candidate endorsements later this month.

GIRLS WORLD EXPOS: RECRUITING THE NEXT GENERATION OF SISTERS IN THE BROTHERHOOD

We are exhibiting at several Girls World Expos around our Council this year in Madison, WI (October 28) and Omaha, NE ( January 27). We also exhibited at an expo in Des Moines, IA, in September. These events strive to expose girls to high-achieving female role models and encourage them to explore a variety of career and education options.

By participating, the Council is able to talk with girls about the benefits of a career in the trades and recruit the next generation of Sisters in the Brotherhood. Learn more about the expos >
