The United Brotherhood of Carpenters Eastern District and Trade Show Industry Leaders Sign Value Added Commitment
6/8/2017
Representatives from the United Brotherhood of Carpenters Eastern District (UBC), Exhibitor Appointed Contractors Association (EACA) and the Exhibition Services & Contractors Association (ESCA) will come together to sign a Value-Added Commitment (VAC) aimed at improving the ability to deliver first class customer service and cost savings for the customers of the exhibition industry.

By signing the Value-Added Commitment, the UBC, the EACA and the ESCA are committing to working together to achieve the following 5 goals to benefit members, contractors, exhibitors and customers of the trade show industry throughout the Eastern District:
  • Free Movement of Manpower within the District
  • Customer Service Training
  • Establishment of a Drug-Free Workplace
  • Safety
  • Industry Specific Training.
This commitment is the result of a specially formed working committee comprised of UBC and industry leaders who attended the UBC's Trade Show Summit in March earlier this year. It enshrines principles both parties agreed were important in establishing the best environment for workers and contractors to build market share and create more jobs.

"What I appreciate about working with the Carpenters is that they understand the importance of training and customer service," said Jim Wurm, Executive Director of the EACA. "They really treat our members as customers and are committed to responding to our needs." "The Carpenters came to us as employers to partner with them to create the Value-Added Commitment for the betterment of the entire industry," said Larry Arnaudet, Executive Director of the ESCA. "We are looking forward to working together to promote this Commitment throughout the Eastern District."

This program will be piloted throughout the UBC's Eastern District, a region covering from Maine to Washington, D.C. "We are dedicated to building strong partnerships with our employers and creating work opportunities for our members," said UBC Eastern District Vice President Michael Capelli. "Our goal is to better understand the needs of the industry so we can give our members the highest quality training to get the job done." Capelli said. "This Value-Added Commitment will help us achieve that goal."
