Welcome To Local 45
Welcome to Local 45's website, we are one of nine Local's that make up the NYC District Council of Carpenters. Local 45 has always been for the members first. We realize without a strong membership base we would not have the respect and accomplishments that we have had over the years. I truly believe our Apprentices are the best within the city. Local 45 started the first apprentice mentoring program and we understand that our apprentices are the ones who will carry this organization into the future.
I would like to say thank you to all of our members who volunteer their time and efforts to make this local the best in the New York City. Let us be leaders in the NYCDCC and regain our market share and secure work for our members for the future.

We WON! The Wage Theft Bill is on the books in New York State! Workers are now protected against wage theft thanks to NYC Carpenters!
This year, Labor Day had even more meaning when Governor Kathy Hochul put the pen to paper and officially signed the Wage Theft Bill (S2766) into law! Along with Senator Jessica Ramos and Assemblywoman Latoya Joyner, the NYC Carpenters Union and our members played a critical role in making this law a reality. Through our Carpenters RISE campaign, our members were vocal and insistent. We called on electeds to sign on to the bill. We held rallies and marched down the streets. We sent letters and we made our voices heard across social media. Because of the hard work put in by our members, vulnerable and exploited workers who have been ripped off by greedy contractors with nowhere to turn now have protections, and unscrupulous contractors will be held accountable!
This is a tremendous win for the Carpenters Union, for construction workers, and for hardworking men and women across the state. When we come together for a common goal, Carpenters RISE! Thank you!
