IUPAT President Jimmie Williams foresight on Resolution 4 works to protect all union members in America and Canada. God bless President WIlliams!


What is Resolution 4?

Resolution #4 – Eligibility to Serve as a Building Trades State, Provincial or Local Council Officer

All State, Provincial and Local Building and Construction Trades Councils strictly adhere to the Department’s Constitution and Solidarity Charter program by requiring that all officers of State, Provincial and Local Building Trades Councils be members in good standing of a National or International Union affiliated with the Building and Construction Trades Department or members in good standing of a Local Union or District Council that has a full Solidarity Charter.

Why is Resolution 4 important?

The United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America are not a member of the National Building and Construction Trades Department, but throughout the country many UBCJA members hold office in state Building and Construction Trades Councils. Resolution 4 seeks to ensure future officers will respect the Building and Construction Trades tradition of solidarity and respect regarding craft lines.

"If we would have listened to Jimmie Williams nine years ago when he began beating this drum about Doug McCarron and the UBC, we would not be in this mess today!"
SMWIA President Michael Sullivan

"We firmly believe that the energies of the Building and Construction Trades unions should first be directed to organizing the craft workers in the markets they used to represent, before they divert their members hard-earned dues in efforts reach out to workers they lack the knowledge to represent and the skills or resources to train."

Statement of United Brotherhood of Carpenters General President Douglas J. McCarron in response to AFL-CIO Resolution 70 - Hey Dougie, practice what you preach!
