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!

November Meeting

Please note that Novembers regular meeting will be postponed a full week due to historically low turnout on November 23rd  and will be moved to November 30th. The 23rd of November is a busy time for most members and the E-board has decided to push the meeting out a week to allow members the time to safely travel to be with family and friends for the holiday. We hope this won’t be an inconvenience for anyone and wish you all the very best and safe travels for the holidays. See you on the 30th!
