New Tools for Our Most Important Work


Welcome to our Eastern District website. The site was static for a time during staff changes, but now we have streamlined and updated it.

The new site has a tight focus on capabilities that can help each of us in policing contracts, protecting area standards, and expanding market share to bring more work to more members.

Two simple, secure, and powerful tools here will support those efforts. Both are password-protected and are accessible only to staff in our Eastern District Councils.

First is an enhanced Contractor Search. Along with fresh data, contractor listings now will note any International Agreements, so you can verify signatory status as well as a whether a company is on record for permission to work across UBC boundaries.

The second tool lets us securely share information and take faster action in individual cases. District staff can now send emails directing users to the “Notices” page for specific, protected, information, including the time-sensitive efforts to track particular developers, contractors, subs, and projects in every corner of our District.

Our Council websites and keep members and the industry informed about UBC skills, training, productivity, and our many efforts to increase union market share.

Now our reworked District site and these secure tools will help all of us to coordinate those efforts more closely and get our work done better than ever.
