Brothers and Sisters,
Fraternal greetings to all and welcome to the home of Boston Newspaper Printing Pressmen’s Union Local 3’s website! Founded in 1896, Boston Newspaper Printing Pressmen’s Union Local 3 represents working men and women in the Graphic Arts and is the largest printing union in New England. With your help we expect this to be a key tool in communicating and serving our members for the foreseeable future. Your elected officers intend to post regular updates to areas that affect our members not only in the shops we represent but in the entire labor movement in general.
The site will allow us to contact members with “news blasts” informing you of issues facing working men and women of the Graphic Communications Conference of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters as well as legislative issues that affect all of us who work for a living a demanding fairness on the job. As an organizing tool we want to spotlight the benefits of going union to future members and employers alike.
We will keep members informed of matters of interest such as retirements, deaths, new members and victories. We will have a section where members can share photos, memories, and the history of our union, our newspapers, and our print shops. We look forward to comments and opinions from our members as our new website gets up and running. As it is a work in progress please feel free to contact us anytime with suggestions on how to make this a successful part of our union.
Stephen T. Sullivan
President & Business Representative
