Anyone know of Houston Tx s Carpenters LOCAL 551?

I am trying to decide whether or not it would be a good idea to join this union. Does anyone know if they have consistent work for the year? And is it a good place to start a career? I am 25 years old with a college degree, wanting to change careers.

    I’m from the Metro area of New York so I can’t say for sure but from what i’ve learned in the 2 years wit my local Plumbers union is the future of carpentery is dead

    2008 Recession wiped out the carpenters union pension packed where the entire northeast has joined to try and save eachother. Every job I’ve been so far in 2 years on I’ve never seen a union carpenter yet. All illegal aliens or non union carpenters from out of state

    If you’re looking for job security i suggest considering plumbing or electric work. Preferably Union
