History

Our Emblem
In 1884, delegates to the United Brotherhood of Carpenters’ fourth General Convention adopted this emblem to serve as a symbol of the union’s ideals. After a century and a quarter, some of the items are no longer common on jobsites, but the values they represent remain a vital part of the Brotherhood.
  • The motto ‘Labor Omnia Vincit’ means ‘Labour Conquers All Things.’
  • The ruler signifies the Golden Rule.
  • The compass reminds members to stay on track in their lives and work.
  • The jack plane is a simple symbol of the trade.
  • The colours were carefully chosen: pale blue for the purity of labour; dark red for the dignified labour that flows like blood through those who toil.
  • The shield embodies the concept that all members are morally bound to protect the interests of the organization and its members.
