50-Year Member Can See His Work Across the Atlanta Skyline

Joseph Brown, Honorary Member, used to work non-union for seven years, but wanted better pay and benefits. In 1964, he joined Carpenters Local 225. Since then, Brother Brown worked on the Westin Hotel and many other major buildings that now make up the Atlanta skyline. At 89 years young, Brother Brown still drives and maneuvers Atlanta traffic better than most half his age. The members of Carpenters Local 225 salute Brother Joseph Brown for his 50 years of service!
