Marie-Thérèse “Tess” Browne, SCN, will receive the Labor Guild’s Fr. Ed Boyle award this year for her ongoing work with the Labor Guild to bring equality and justice in the workplace.
About the honor, Sister Tess says, “As long as we breathe, we can’t give up. As long as we eat, we are involved in the farmworker, migrant and immigrant struggle. My St. Katharine Drexel Parish, SKD-Social Justice Committee, the South Asian Worker Center, Women In Leadership Development, and the young people in labor studies and women building community classes inspire and keep me going!”
The Labor Guild’s annual awards for outstanding service in the eastern Massachusetts labor relations community was launched in 1967. It providea well-deserved recognition to individual practitioners for excellence and singular service in labor-management affairs and inspiration and education to the general labor-management community by showcasing outstanding contributors.
