LIUNA Local 1249 represents only Public Employees across Southeastern Massachusetts. Local 1249 was chartered August 26, 1968 in Falmouth, Massachusetts and consists of Public Employees from the South Shore & Cape Cod, with the 400 members being made up of various bargaining groups from the Towns of Acushnet, Bourne, Dartmouth, Dennis, Falmouth, Mashpee, Nantucket, Truro & Wareham.

LIUNA has been at the forefront of representing Public Employees, establishing a dedicated Public Employee Department at the start, as well as extensive training courses, and Local 1249 has been actively on board with them for over 55 years. We're proud of our heritage and look forward to servicing our existing members, while at the same time bringing new members into our Union family.
