Working on behalf of its client Local 103, IBEW, Guerrilla Mobile Billboards has launched the start of what is anticipated to be a year long mobile billboard ad campaign in the greater Boston area.  The campaign highlights the labor union’s concern that electricians employed by selected contractors in the region are not being paid “community standard” wages and benefits.
