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.

TO ALL COVERED MEMBERS:
This letter describes the Scholarship Benefits provided by Local 45 and the requirements for participation. This program is another way for us to express our abiding interest in the local member and his family by making the awards and benefits of higher education available to deserving young people.
The scholarship award will be made for the academic year beginning September 1, 2020. Applications for this award must be RECIEVED in hand to Local 45, 214-38 Hillside Avenue, Queens Village, NY 11427 PRIOR to JANUARY 31, 2021. An application is attached to this brochure for your convenience.
All phases of the scholarship competition, including selection of winners and determination of the amount of scholarship awards, are handled by the Scholarship and Recognition Program, which is a Program Service of the College Board.
Two scholarships will be awarded. The awards will be $3,000.00 for each year of a four-year academic program, or until the student receives a bachelor’s degree, whichever is first.
All awards will be sent directly to the college at which award winners are enrolled, and credited to the student’s account for payment of authorized college expense (tuition, room and board for college-operated accommodations, and all documented matriculation and other usual and similar fees).
Disbursement of stipend will be made in accordance with the scholarship policy of the institution concerned.
The winners of the Charles Johnson Scholarships will not be eligible for the Local 45 award.
To qualify, the applicant must be an unmarried dependent child of an eligible employee or pensioner covered by the Plan, living or deceased. The child of a pensioner or deceased employee will be considered eligible if the pensioner or deceased employee had met the requirements for an active employee at the time he died or retired, and the child was at least 12 years of age when the pensioner retired or the employee died.
Applicants will be considered eligible without regard to age provided they are unmarried and:
- entering college as freshmen without prior college credit, or
