Sisters in the Brotherhood Committee Launches in Local 1846

Carpenters & Pile Drivers Local 1846 got even stronger recently, when it held its first Sisters in the Brotherhood (SIB) meeting. About 20 female members attended, and handled their first order of business by electing Cindy Moffett as chairwoman for the Local 1846 SIB Committee. They then heard a presentation by Council SIB Coordinator Maria Robles of Local 551.

“They are very enthusiastic and are looking forward to getting the committee up and running,” said Council President, Council Business Representative, and Local 1846 member John Edwards. “An active SIB committee will make our Local and our Regional Council that much stronger. Welcome, Sisters!”

Every day, thousands of women play a critical role in making the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America the best union in North America. Female members of the Central South Carpenters Regional Council are doing the same. Central South women are in every area of the trade and the union as carpenters, scaffolders, pile drivers, floor layers, and mill-cab and industrial workers.
