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!

Greetings Brothers and Sisters:

I thank you for the opportunity to work for LU 567 since 2008 and I am looking forward to my new assignment. Please welcome James Valente as your new Business Manager. He was appointed by your Executive Board and will assume those responsibilities on October 20th as well.
