Posted May 1, 2024, 12:07pm

The UPSE Young Workers Committee is proud to award two (2) $500 bursaries annually to UPSE members in good standing age 35 or under who are pursuing part-time or full-time continuing education from a Canadian public education institution while continuing to work at an UPSE bargaining unit workplace.

This year’s winners are Georgia-Rae Connolly (Local 7, OT Activity Worker), and Nonie Lyon (Local 8, Collaborative Mental Health Social Worker). Congratulations to the winners!

Steve Mollins was a strong union advocate for our youth and young workers. It was his dedication and inspiration that inspired UPSE’s Young Workers Committee, in his memory, to establish bursaries to highlight the importance of the Union’s young worker membership. Steve was a long-time member of UPSE’s Board of Directors and a knowledgeable Union activist.
