Sisters In The Brotherhood

Advancing Women In The Industry
Sisters in the Brotherhood (SIB) advocate for more involvement from Sisters in all levels of union leadership and activities because when women work, we all benefit.

SIB supports female members by providing assistance in obtaining craft training and leadership skills; by being advocates on women issues; and by mentoring new members and even potential members.

Women are in every area of the trade and the District Council: as shop stewards, superintendents and lead instructors; on the staff of the District Council and locals; and, of course, on job sites—as carpenters on all kinds of projects, millwrights fine-tuning turbines, pile drivers, floorcoverers, and industrial workers.

The Sisters in the Brotherhood’s mission is to create a network of active Sisters who will promote the values of leadership, strength, and unity within the labor movement. Our valuable mentoring network provides our Sisters with the tools to be confident and successful in the highly competitive construction industry.
