   Maine Lobstermen Tap Into Union Network For Retail Sales
by Penelope Overton, Portland Press Herald

A few months after buying a lobster pound and processing plant, Maine’s lobstering union is now tapping its connection to unions across the country to rack up online retail sales and reap greater financial returns for its members.

The union is now shipping live Maine lobster caught by its 400 members anywhere in the country. The path these lobsters will take on their way from the ocean floor to your door is completely unionized, from the Vinalhaven lobsterman who traps it to the Rockland truck driver who picks it up from a transfer boat to the Lamoine plant worker who packs it to the UPS teamster who delivers it.

Anyone can buy them, of course, but the Maine Lobstering Union is definitely looking to make the most of a nationwide union network.
