The Southeastern Carpenters Regional Council is actively involved in politics on the federal, state and local levels, and we help our individual members to speak in a strong, unified voice. We practice “Carpenter Politics,” an inclusive and non-partisan effort to support candidates who champion the goals of working people, promote needed infrastructure investments, and support fair trade.
Political activity is an important function of our Locals and Council. Political committees may interview candidates seeking support, promote political involvement and voting among the membership, and assist in campaigns.
Members are encouraged to attend government meetings and public hearings where issues affecting them are discussed and to reach out directly to the officials they helped elect.
Get involved! We need every carpenters’ voice to be heard in our halls of government!
