If you are a retired member who is covered by United Healthcare, you may be entitled to an $80.00 Quarterly benefit for over the counter items supplementing products. This benefit is a great resource to purchase supplies such as vitamins, health products and most over the counter items one may need. Go to Firstlinemedical.com - call 800 933 2914 or call your United Healthcare representative about how to sign up. It doesn't cost you anything out of pocket and is very valuable to those living on a fixed income.

The Guild exists to foster and maintain ties among us, keep informed of policies affecting our well-being, provide a communication channel with the New York City District Council, and offer interesting social and recreational activities. Over numerous years of service, our members have learned what makes this Union great, shared their knowledge and experience so apprentices could learn the proud trade of Union Carpentry.
Generations of Carpenters passing on tradition constructing New York City’s buildings and infrastructure. We will always be grateful to those who served before us and look forward
to passing on our tradition.
There are so many ways to support our mission. Contact us to find out more about volunteer opportunities, fundraising events, and ways to get our message to your friends and family.
