Owen MacLennan Trade Unionist of the Year

The Owen MacLennan Trade Unionist of the Year Award is an annual award. The application deadline is June 30 every year. This award acknowledges and celebrates individual trade unionists who have made a significant and/or ongoing contribution to the labour movement. Both union staff and union members are eligible for nomination.

The Owen MacLennan Trade Unionist of the Year Award was established in 2020, on the 10th anniversary of the passing of Owen MacLennan. Owen MacLennan worked at Eastern Bakeries from 1951 to 1994. He had a strong work ethic and was an active member of the Bakery, Confectionary, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers Union (BCTGM) local 406 in Moncton.

A donation in the amount of $1,000 will be made by Argus Audiology in the name of the award recipient to the New Brunswick Federation of Labour (NBFL) Blair Doucet Youth Summer Camp. The presentation of the award will be made during labour day weekend each year. Award recipients will also be formally recognized during the NBFL Convention.
