Scholfield Award of Distinction given to labour activist Marion Burton

April 19, 2018

Labour activist Marion Burton is this year’s recipient of the Schofield Award of Community Distinction.

The award, established by the United Way of Peterborough and District in 2004, recognizes an individual or organization for an outstanding contribution and ability to mobilize change in the community.

“Marion has been a longtime volunteer in the community with the Labour Council and otherwise,” says Karen Wilson, chair of the United Way.

“In my regular job, labour issues and employment issues are very, very important. I’m with Employment Planning and Counselling Peterborough so there’s been many, many opportunities for me to see Marion at community meetings and get togethers. (She’s) always willing to put forth a lot of effort.”


The Peterborough and District Labour Council (PDLC) is the central body of union locals in the Peterborough area (Peterborough County plus Omemee) who are affiliated with the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC).
