Here is what people say about Local 27

I would recommend the Local 27 Carpenters Union to anybody and everybody, it is a good place for the young people to start a new life in the workforce, a typical day would be... Get to the site, do a good job and go home without injures. I learned how to work with other people, there is always good management to turn to and to talk to. You always meet different people to work with. The hardest part of the job is saying goodbye to the new friends you made! The most enjoyable part of the job is after the job is done and looking back at the site and realizing and feeling the satisfaction of knowing you did that and getting pride from it...
