The Maine Lobstering UNION
"If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will." - Frederick Douglas
The Maine Lobstering Union is the only Union based non-profit member run association in the entire lobstering industry. And with the guidance and support of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM), the lobstermen and women of Maine have secured their seat at the table. No longer are decisions made at the state and federal level without their voices being heard. And with the start of Lobster207 and the subsequent purchase of a wholesale facility in Trenton, Maine, no longer are they simply told what they are going to get paid for the lobster that they bring ashore.
So you can feel good about ordering lobster from lobster207.com knowing that every penny you pay goes directly back to the lobstermen!
