Below is a press release from IBEW Local 103:
WILMINGTON, MA — The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 103, the region’s largest electrical workers’ union, hosted a ribbon-cutting to celebrate the grand opening of its new office location in Wilmington, MA. Union members, elected leadership, friends, and city and state officials joined together for the event.
The new office, located at 21 Concord Street, expands Local 103’s operations, as well as its footprint, throughout the region. Business Manager/Financial Secretary Lou Antonellis hopes the new office will allow the local union to serve even more working people throughout the union’s Eastern MA jurisdiction.
“We’re thrilled to open our new office in the Town of Wilmington, and to work even closer with the community there,” said Antonellis. “In our mission to grow and strengthen the middle class, IBEW Local 103 is committed to providing local families with world-class training, quality wages, and benefits. This office adds capacity to achieving that vision in a tangible way, and reflects the fortitude of our union even in tough times.”
IBEW Local 103 represents more than 10,000 members, active and retired, and has consistently been recognized as one of the fastest-growing local unions within the IBEW. It offers 5-year apprentice training programs at its Dorchester campus, where aspiring electrical workers earn industry-leading wages while they learn either an electrical or telecommunication skillset.
IBEW Local 103’s new office in Wilmington augments the union’s existing headquarters in Dorchester.
