Application deadline: June 30, 2021

Marty Warren, District 6 Director, has made available a $1000 scholarship to the child of a Steelworker member in memory of Peter Leibovitch, a member of Local 8782 who embodied the true meaning of a labour activist committed to working people and their rights.

Peter Leibovitch was an important part of United Steelworkers Local 8782 for over 30 years. His career started at Stelco's Hilton Works as a mechanic/millwright and his activism continued with his transfer to Lake Erie Works in 1987. Peter held many positions within the local, including President, a position he held from 1989 to 1997.

One of Peter's passions was political action and he worked on many NDP campaigns at all levels of government. Working in the political arena, Peter worked with others to improve the lives of all working people. Peter was a staunch supporter of civil liberties, human rights and social justice his entire life.
