Servicing Union Carpenters in the Twin Cities
Local 322 services over 5,600 proud hard-working members of the Carpenters Union.
The purpose of the Carpenters Local Union 322 is to provide for, protect and improve the general welfare of its members and the employees represented by it, both directly and indirectly, by all lawful means and methods under the guidance of the North Central States Regional Council of Carpenters.
Carpenters work on some of the biggest projects out there. You'll see us working on commercial buildings, hotels, stadiums, refineries, and even bridges. We are often the first on the job and the last to leave. From site prep, concrete forms and decks to framing walls and roofs, windows, doors, cabinetry, countertops, trim, installing doors and hardware and specialty furniture.
Below are a few projects our members have put a lot of hours into. We're proud of the work we do. We're professionally trained by a state-certified training program at no cost to taxpayers.
St Croix River Bridge
This bridge took 4 years, 3 months to build. At a cost of $646M including building 3 miles of four-lane highway for WI-35 and rebuilding approximately 3 miles of MN-36 and MN-95. Watch the short time-lapse video.
Pine Bend Oil Refinery
