This website is no longer maintained on a regular basis except for the current news pages. It remains as an historical archive of the struggle for Canadian autonomy over the last 12 years. The BC Carpenters Union broke away from the International UBCJA and became the union known as CMAW - the Construction Maintenance and Allied Workers.
