W. Vernie Reed Scholarship

2022 Scholarship Information

In 1981 the W. Vernie Reed Scholarship Fund was established as a living memorial to the late W. Vernie Reed, General Secretary-Treasurer of the Laborers’ International Union of North America, who represented our Northwest Region. Since that time, the scholarship fund has awarded over 436 scholarships, totaling over $830,000, to our members, their children and grandchildren from various Local Unions throughout the Region. We should all take great pride that we have established such a fund in memory of one of LIUNA's past leaders, who fought so hard for every LIUNA member, Local Union and District Council.

Through the generosity of Brother Reed’s friends and associates, a self perpetuating fund will provide a program of yearly scholarships to assist eligible worthy students in furthering their four (4) year undergraduate education. The first award was made in the Spring of 1981. Scholarships are usually awarded before July.


For 2022:

The Board of Directors is pleased to announce it will be awarding the following scholarships:

  • One $6,000 scholarship, Pamela Reed winner

  • Twenty-two (22) $3,000 Local Union scholarships

  • Six (6) $2,500 scholarships for the District Councils and Western Canada Sub regional Office

  • Up to thirty-two (32) $2,000, At-Large scholarships

Just like last year, if no application or qualified applicant is received from a Local Union, that Local Union’s $3,000 scholarship will be available to another Local Union.

Please note – ONLY original applications will be accepted. Fax and photocopies are no longer accepted.

Please note – The applications will request an email address for all applicants.

House Passage of Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill Paves Way for Hundreds of Thousands of Good Union Jobs

Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement:

The long-awaited vote by the U.S. House of Representatives to pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill, the single greatest infrastructure investment in generations, is a victory for the hard-working men and women of LIUNA. The $1.2 trillion investment will restore our roads and bridges, our water systems, transit, and broadband with historic new investments. The investment will put Laborers to work in every community, revitalize our nation’s economy, and open doors to the middle-class for hundreds of thousands of working men and women.

This victory could not have occurred without the grassroots support and extraordinary activism of LIUNA members who working together, took up this fight, barraging members of Congress with tens of thousands of emails and calls, as well as, attending more than one hundred townhall events, parades, rallies, and press events. From billboards and digital ad trucks, LIUNA’s message, “Pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill Now,” was heard loud and clear.

LIUNA members are builders and that is just what we are ready to do. We look forward to working with the White House on the rollout of the infrastructure bill, the Build Back Better Agenda, and the creation of good union jobs building this nation.

Building Trades National Medical Screening Program

The Building Trades National Medical Screening program is designed to identify health problems caused by hazardous substances that workers may have been exposed to while working on a Department of Energy site.

During this Program, you will complete a work history interview and a limited medical screening examination to identify risk factors for diseases that might develop in the future. We will also provide you with information on the risks and how to reduce them.

This Program is entirely voluntary and without cost to you. You will not be compensated for your participation. However, you may benefit in increased knowledge about your personal health. Your participation may also benefit future workers by helping to identify trends in groupings of information that may be important to their health and well-being. This Program is funded for a limited time. We cannot assure that it will be continued in the future, or that there will be another program to take its place.


 We are LIUNA!
