A union that began with a few on the island of Vinalhaven has now grown to include members all along Maine’s nearly 3,500 mile coastline.  With two legislative victories under its belt, the IAM’s Maine Lobstering Union is now headed by Rocky Alley, who hopes to continue the union’s growth and influence to help save an industry plagued by low lobster prices and rising costs associated with government regulation and boat maintenance. Some of the newest members of the union are featured in this video.
