Mike McMullin named first recipient

LOCAL LODGE 555 (Winnipeg, Manitoba) presented its first Mark Langan Apprentice Achievement Award to Mike McMullin Dec. 1, 2010. The award recognizes apprentices who demonstrate commitment to the Boilermaker trade. It takes into account volunteerism, attendance at union meetings, work ethic on the job, performance in apprenticeship school, and respect by co-workers.

Ted Stark, L-555 business rep and training coordinator, said the award was made possible by a $5,000 memorial donation from Langan’s son, Clinton Langan, and daughter, Shelley Herrick. Mark Langan died April 10, 2010. A member since 1969, he served as the lodge’s recording secretary for one term and as its president from 1986 until his retirement in 2002. Stark said Langan was instrumental in constructing L-555’s first in-house welding and training facilities, and was heavily involved in union events, even after his retirement.

McMullin received a $1,000 monetary award along with a plaque.

Chartered in 1954, L-555 is a construction and shop lodge with jurisdiction in Saskatchewan and northwestern Ontario.
