Presidents McCarron and Trump Meet

In the opening days of Donald Trump's Presidency, the United Brotherhood of Carpenters secured a seat at the table to establish a good relationship with President Trump and his administration and advocate on behalf of our members.

Moments after signing an order to cease participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership, President Trump met with the nation's labor leaders, including UBC General President Douglas J. McCarron.

Here's a video clip of the meeting, including President McCarron's comments at the end. Accompanying President McCarron at the meeting was UBC Political and Legislative Director Tom Flynn, shown in the video, seated to the right of President McCarron.
