Toronto Public Library Workers Union

Toronto Public Library Warriors attend the Bromley Armstrong Awards and Gala. Congratulations to the 2018 recipient, Nigel Barriffe, President of the Urban Alliance on Race Relations, and a Toronto elementary school teacher.

Bromley is a Jamaican Canadian member of the Autoworkers union who helped lead the Toronto Joint Committee on Human Rights in the 1950’s. This award is presented to a labour activist who has demonstrated excellence in equity and human rights.

The Toronto & York Region Labour Council established this prestigious award in 2004 to commemorate the courage, dedication and outstanding service of Bromley L. Armstrong to the labour and human rights movements in Canada. Annually the Equity committee of the Toronto & York Region Labour Council presents the prestigious award to a deserving recipient that exemplifies Bromley’s commitment to human rights.
