THE ROBERT J. WATSON NATIONAL BURSARY PROGRAM

 

If your parent is a member of one of Canada’s construction and building trade unions whose local union has within its jurisdiction a General Presidents’ Maintenance Agreement or a National Maintenance Agreement you could win a $1000 bursary toward your higher education.

 

The Bursary is offered annually through the General Presidents’ Maintenance Committee/ National Maintenance Council, an alliance of International Building Trades Unions that negotiates and administers labour agreements tailored for maintenance work at industrial plants in Canada.

 

It is named after Bob Watson, who was a United Association International Representative and the long-time Canadian Chairman of the GPMC/NMC. Bob was instrumental in the development of the Building Trades Union contract maintenance industry.

 

It is through the hard work and dedication of Union Representatives like Bob that we are able to offer this Bursary to assist union families in the high cost of post-secondary education.
