Union Activity

Mandatory Union Activity

Every member of the New York City District Council of Carpenters actively contributes to the success of our union. Our members are on the street every day on picket lines, leading rallies, phone banking and/ or participating in political action and community participation.

Every day union activity options are listed on this website.


Members can call (212) 366-7810 Monday through Friday from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. only, and request an assignment the day before they are available for duty. Once the member has selected an assignment, they must give the dispatcher their correct Name, UBC number and Local Union number.


*For Members of other Locals or Carpenters Councils (such as New Jersey), you can call 212-366-7316 or 212-366-7810 to receive information on upcoming picket duty options.  You will be required to provide a UBC number.  We will no longer be providing full access to the website for those outside of our Locals, but we will work to provide you with upcoming activity information.*


A Union Activity Coordinator will not let a member serve their duty unless they are dispatched by the New York City District Council of Carpenters. You cannot just go to an activity site and expect to get signed up.


All union members, including retired members and members from other jurisdictions, who work over 99 hours in the NYC District Council jurisdiction are assessed $500 each at the beginning of the following calendar year for the current year if union activity is not completed by December 31. The member UBC work card cannot be updated by the Local until the assessment is paid in full.
