The District Council of Carpenters reached an agreement yesterday, September 8, with the Association of Wall-Ceiling & Carpentry and the Greater Floor Coverers Association, following a series of contract deadline extensions after the initial June 30 deadline expired. The deal comes on the heels of a separate agreement that the union reached with the Cement League on September 1.

"The district council continues to make positive movement to reach our overall goal of reaching agreements with all of our association partners," the union says in a statement.

A union spokesperson says contract discussions are ongoing with the remaining associations that have contracts set to expire by the end of day on September 12. He would not elaborate, but the union's statement says that "a fair offer has been made and is being considered" by the the Building Contractors Association and the General Contractors Association and their members.
