The Protocol Agreement for National Unity was signed by representatives of the BC Provincial Council of Carpenters, Vancouver Local 1995 and Fraternité Nationale Locals 9 and 2366 on August 29, 2005 in Vancouver. Len Embree and Pat Haggarty signed on behalf of the Council and Randy Smith and Eugenio Zanotto for Local 1995. Yves Mercure from Local 9 Carpenters and Yves Ouelette from Local 2366 Floorlayers & Interior Sytems signed for the Fraternité Nationale.
