    Katrina Manpower Needs - UBC Yes message board

    There is a need for qualified UBC members -- Carpenters, Millwrights, Welders and Pile Drivers of all classifications -- that are willing to work in and around the New Orleans area.

    Interested members may contact the Louisiana Carpenters Regional Council personnel at the numbers listed below for details on available jobs.
    The average Union/UBC carpenters wage scale in the Gulf States is $18 +/- per hour; millwrights average $20 +/-.
    One is looking at staying 60-70 miles from New Orleans, where the lack of housing is still an extreme problem, consider taking a tent or camper.
