DET Mission, Vision, Values

“Being a transformational leader is far more than a title – it’s having the right skills, attitude, and focus to bring about large scale change,” Douglas J. McCarron.

The UBC places a top priority on developing the total professional: Carpenters and Millwrights who are not only technical experts in their craft, but who also demonstrate effective communication and leadership qualities. The Department of Education and Training (DET) contributes to this initiative by highlighting transformational leadership skills, communication and mentoring within our programs and aligning all training with the strategic priorities of Growth, Skill and Professionalism, and Organizational Effectiveness. Our industry is changing quickly and we must meet the demands of shifting cultural expectation. As more members become transformational leaders, they are transforming their jobsites, as well as their union halls, to a constructive culture. This change paves the way for future generations by adopting practices that will lead to 70 percent market share, greater productivity, and overall, a better way of life for our members and their families.
