Attention all students. It’s that time of year again.
The Public and Private Workers of Canada is offering two $1,000 bursaries, including the Orville Braaten Memorial Bursary and the Angus MacPhee Memorial Bursary, which are available to all PPWC members in good standing, including their spouses and dependents. Submission deadline for each bursary is November 1, 2021. Both bursaries are given annually in January.
Orville Braaten is one of the founding fathers of the Public and Private Workers of Canada (PPWC). Orville was the first to question the direction of the International Pulp Sulphite Union. He was the first to demand alternatives, the first to talk of Canadian ideals. The bursary is a small remembrance of his legacy by the PPWC.
Angus MacPhee was one of the founding fathers of the Public and Private Workers of Canada (PPWC). Angus emerged as the leader by choice of the group of activists who formed this union in 1963. He was our leader while active and our mentor after his retirement. The bursary is a small remembrance of his legacy by the PPWC.
