REVERE, MA – On May 23, Mayor Patrick M. Keefe Jr. and the City of Revere Department of Workforce Development and Youth Engagement teamed up with Revere Public Schools, colleges, and career and external learning opportunities to bring a Union Trade Fair to Revere High School.

Some of the groups attending included:

  3. Painters and Allied Trades DC 35
  4. Sheet Metal Workers International Association, Local 17

  7. Operating Engineers, Local 4
  8. Teamsters, Local 25
  9. United States Marines
  10. Franklin Cummings Tech
  11. NorthShore Community College


This fair marks an important expansion of trade-centric programming in Revere Public Schools. Mayor Keefe expressed his support, stating, “We have heard families and students asking for more opportunities to learn about the trades and unions, and we answered. This is a great opportunity for our students. We want to celebrate our students that are taking interest in skilled labor, trade work, and the Armed Forces.”


“We encourage any student interested in pursuing a career in a Union Trade after high school to come and learn about their apprenticeship program,” added Gerry Visconti, Director of Workforce Development and Youth Engagement.
