Powerful message: Boston-area union displays ‘Cowards’ on electronic billboard


Boston may still be reeling from yesterday’s bombings, but there’s no doubt that Bostonians’ spirits are as strong as ever.

Dorchester-based IBEW Local 103 is sending a message to whoever is responsible for what happened:

This is the Local 103 Billboard in #Boston. Just called and they confirmed it’s legit.bit.ly/YQiYe6

It’s not often that we find ourselves in agreement with a labor union, but credit ought to be given where it’s due. Good on them.
