On Friday March 24, 2017, the Regina & District Labour Council in conjunction with the United Way Regina hosted the 13th Annual Community Awards Banquet. Awards were presented in 2 categories.
The Award of Distinction is given to a union worker for their accomplishments in promoting and advancing the Labour Movement. This year’s award was presented to United Steel Worker, Kael Dolejsi.
The Labour Community Service Award is given to a union member for their outstanding contribution to our community. This year’s award was presented to Judy Kobsar, member of the Saskatchewan Government and General Employees Union.
Space doesn’t allow for the many contributions that these 2 deserving winners have accomplished.
