The Carpenter Contractor Trust promotes and markets the talent, productivity, assets and matchless expertise of union carpenters and contractors to the construction community and the public throughout the eastern region of the United States.
The Carpenter Contractor Trust (CCT) is a labor-management trust located in Edison, New Jersey. We promote the vast resources of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters (UBC) thousands of members and participating contractor regional partners.
During the past 100 years, union strategy has ensured that our carpenters and contractors take pride in staying up-to-date on the latest technologies, procedures and applications. Union carpenters and contractors have invested more than $300 million to establish the most successful educational program in the country: apprenticeship training programs.
Our growing geographic diversity gives developers and builders access to a wider range of skills and talents, so they aren't limited to a smaller, local pool of workers. Our new business model is flexible. Project costs with union carpenters and contractors are more stable and predictable due to greater collaboration and pre-established pricing.
When we choose to participate in the funding of a project by providing equity financing, we are making a bold and substantive statement: We believe in this project and will guarantee that our workers are always committed.
Union carpenters and contractors provide the best possible workforce to ensure that each project is successful. Worker efficiency and productivity are the keys to keeping a project on schedule and within budget. Productivity enhances a contractor's profitability and helps ensure that he or she is focusing on quality and cost containment.
