The IBEW 567 Mission in Maine

After many years of calling the Labor temple on 110 Exchange Street home, Local 567 bought and remodeled its own building at 240 Gray Road in Falmouth. However, it was not long before this building could no longer meet the needs of the local union. The Local then purchased the current facility at 238 Goddard Road in Lewiston. This building houses the administration offices of the local union and pension office, the meeting hall, and offices, permanent classrooms and training space for JATC.

Since 1915 IBEW Local 567 has been a leader in the electrical industry of Maine. The future is full of promise as long as members can recall the dedication and solidarity of those who went before us. It is that type of resolve that has allowed this local union to grow and enjoy the success we have today!

Apprentices Volunteer

This is an article that was in the Portland Press Herald in regards to the individual that the Apprentices helped by donating their labor working on the remodeling project.


Foreman Training

Community Service Project

PJATC Apprentices have contributed to a very worthy service project in the city of Portland. This family was impacted by a tragic ATV accident in which the father was seriously injured. Due to the extent of his injuries area contractors have come together to remodel his home to become handicap accessible. PJATC apprentices have contributed over 80 man hours of combined labor to furnish the electrical work along with NECA contractor , E S Boulos Co.
