Register and vote early or absentee Posted by on

After all the talk, it'd be a shame if you didn't take advantage of your right to vote. Please make sure you are registered to vote before your state's deadline. In some states you must be registered by a specific date. In others, you may register on election day.

If you will be unable to go to your local polling location on November 8, please vote using an early or absentee ballot. Each state has provisions for citizens to participate in elections when they are incapacitated or away from their homes on election day for other reasons. You must request a ballot by a certain date and return it by a certain date.

Carpenters building boardwalk for refuge Posted by on

Union carpenters have taken on a volunteer project in Sudbury and volunteers are needed.

The project involves buidling a boardwalk through the Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge in Sudbury. Carpenters are measuring, cutting and installing 10' stringers and cross decking on completed support structures on the Red Maple Trail.

This is a UPP project that will be ongoing through mid-November.

Pictured are Brothers Michael Loynd (left) and Thomas Parmensi, both members of Carpenter Local 275, working on the project.


Carpenters are needed on Wednesdays and Thursdays, with extra volunteer hours possible Sunday through Thursday.

Confirmed work dates are October 12 & 13, October 26 & 27, November 2 & 3 and November 16 & 17.

The project is at 73 Weir Hill Road in Sudbury. Work starts at 8:30 am. Members should bring a hardhat, gloves, eye protection and basic hand tools.

The contact for the project is Tum Puopolo, who can be reached at 978-265-7467.
