  1. I live in connecticut, i am a member of the carpenter union for about 10 years now. i want to move to texas. Can i have a transfer to texas or do i have to drop from the union here first? Can i have a phone number that i can call in texas?

    1. You could transfer your book over to ours or one of the other locals in Texas. Call 512-476-7354 for our local, or perhaps call the Texas Carpenters Regional Council at 877-220-2746 for information about ours and other locals and get an idea about where you want to end up. It’s a big state and each local has its own industries that it serves in addition to the more standard work within the trade. Good luck.

  3. Hello,
    My name is Drew. I am currently a military contractor, deployed in Afghanistan. I would like to speak with someone regarding an apprenticeship. However, I do not have access to a telephone. Would it be possible to begin a correspondence via email? I would like to send in my resume, and begin as much of the process as I can. I live in Austin, and once I am done over here, would like to begin as soon as possible. If you could, please, let me know, I would greatly appreciate it. In advance, thank you very much for your time and consideration.
