Meet Julie. She's a six-year Journeywoman Union Carpenter. After graduating Smith Vocational and Agricultural High School for Carpentry, Julie struggled finding steady work in the male-dominated industry —that is, until she came across a brochure for the Carpenters Union. As a union member, Julie has taken on many leadership opportunities — she helped start the union’s Sisters in the Brotherhood chapter and heads up the Local’s apprenticeship mentoring program. Last year, she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Project Management by attending school at night in a program the union has established with the Wentworth Institute of Technology. Julie has also helped also build sisterhood — she helped start the union’s Sisters in the Brotherhood chapter and will be hosting a BBQ for Western MA tradeswomen this weekend! “Joining the union has opened my eyes to more opportunities than I initially imagined I’d have the opportunity to achieve."
