You Might Qualify

Who Knew?

If you are reading this blog you’re likely interested in applying for a Harriet Bouslog Labor Scholarship, but may not know if you qualify because no one in your family works on the plantations or the docks, and, therefore, could not possibly be an ILWULocal142 Local 142 member.

Don’t give up so easily for in my 25 year association with the Harriet Bouslog Labor Scholarship Fund, it has been my experience that many of our scholarship recipients didn’t know that their parents or grandparents were 142 members. Given that a scholarship recipient need only be a family member of an existing or retired ILWULocal142 142 member, your need to expand your search to your entire family and you need to expand your idea of what kind of worker might be a 142 member.

It is true that the ILWULocal142 first organized the plantations and Honolulu’s waterfront and if your family members worked there, they were likely members of Local 142. However, that is not the only type of jobs and the only businesses that were organized by the ILWULocal142 and, therefore, you need to expand the scope of your questions to your family about it relationship with the ILWULocal142. Many hotel workers are ILWULocal142 members as well as other industries, including Love’s Bakery.

So ask everyone in your family where they work and have worked and whether they were a member of Local 142 of the ILWULocal142. You too may be saying “WHO KNEW.” More importantly, your dream of a college education may be a step closer to being realized.
