Do You Know an Outstanding Union Activist at MoveUP?

Monday, October 16, 2017
To: All MoveUP Members

Nominations are open for the 2017 Ardell Brophy award. This annual award is presented to MoveUP stewards who demonstrate fierce dedication and commitment to their union, and who provide mentorship to new union activists.

Ardell donated her talents as a standup comedian to raise money for countless causes and has mentored many up-and-coming female comics. She first served MoveUP members on the executive board before becoming a union representative at the union office for over 18 years. She passed away in 2015 after a long battle with pulmonary fibrosis.

The MoveUP executive council created the award in Ardell’s honour in 2010. The past recipients of the award are Lori Watt (2011), Stephen Von Sychowski (2012), Karin Cirez (2013), Laurie Kirk (2014), Joyce Galuska (2015), Heather Christie (2016) and Linda Kemp (2017).

The award will be presented to the applicant with an outstanding record of union activism, and one who has mentored new activists. 
Deadline for application is January 26, 2018, at 4:30 p.m. The award will be presented at the Job Steward Seminar in the spring of 2018.  You can find the nomination form here.

In solidarity,

David Black
President
