Anand Vaid Memorial Bursary - $1000

Anand, like most who get involved with the union, began as a steward in the 90s at the Wascana Campus in Regina. He listened to his co-workers and their plights and wanted to do more to assist them to understand and learn more about their rights and their collective agreement. Anand branched out to serve on several committees to assist others and also gain a better understanding how best to represent his co-workers.

Anand served on his campus executive committee and became a bargaining committee representative, where he continued to raise issues and gain valuable insight by listening to others throughout SGEU to assist those that he represented not only locally, but provincially as long as he was with us.

Tracey Kurtenbach Bursary - $1000

Tracey started her work as a steward for the members of the Professional Services bargaining unit and then as the local campus chairperson. She went on to become the bargaining committee chairperson and steered the membership through many significant changes and events.

Tracey was a tenacious fighter for the collective rights of the membership as well as for individual members who needed her. She was one of the best negotiators ever to have led an SGEU bargaining unit. Her ability to think several steps ahead in any situation and her attention to detail ensured the membership was never left in a weak position. To the very end she always placed the membership and their needs abover her own.

Shawna North Bursary - $1000

Shawna was a very vocal and active member at the Moose Jaw Campus of Saskatchewan Polytechnic. She started as steward at the then-named SIAST Palliser Campus. She worked hard to support the local members and went on to become campus chair in 2009. She then joined the bargaining team and successfully negotiated three collective agreements. She was elected as the vice-president of the education sector in 2010. She ran unopposed bi-annually every term and she continued in this position until the time of her passing. Shawna can be best described as passionate in her support of members and their rights.
