In 1881, Peter J. McGuire helped found the United Brotherhood of Carpenters. In 1882, he proposed the idea of Labour Day to become a national holiday. Peter J. McGuire is now known as the founder of Labour Day.
This Labour day, we want to remember our past and continue to build our future. We are stronger in numbers and we would like to thank all our membership for their continued strength and dedication. We would like to wish you and your families a safe and happy Labour Day weekend.
On August 12th, 1881, Peter J. McGuire organized a convention in Chicago for 36 carpenters from 11 different cities. And with that, the United Brotherhood of Carpenters was born.
From 1881 to 2020, our union has accomplished so much. We’ve weathered many storms, but always come out stronger. As we continue to mentor and educate the newest generation of union carpenters, we always uphold the UBC’s legacy of hard work, top-notch training, and strong leadership.
