The United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America Western Pennsylvania Regional District Council of Carpenters was established in 1887 to coordinate common action on the part of the various AFL Carpenters locals, to advance uniform work standards, and to help resolve disputes among the locals or between them and other organizations or individuals.
