    Union, banks back United Front efforts to build affordable housing During a Sept. 25 press conference at the Renaissance Hotel, Rev. Dr. Charles E. Koen, director of the United Front Inc. (UFI) announced the "marriage" of the UFI Carpenter’s Training School and with the United Brotherhood of Carpenters (UBC) Union and an association of 62 community development banks.

    The "marriage" is realized in the fact that the school and factory are union shops—every student who graduates enters the union—and the goal of building one million homes across the country in five years has the financial backing of the banks, Rev. Koen said.
