Terri Mast, secretary of the Inlandboatmen's Union and Bridges Center Visiting Committee member, received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Labor Oscars hosted by MLK Labor on Friday, May 10. 

The Labor Oscars celebrates the people who have done outstanding work to improve the lives of working people in King County. More than 100 people were nominated for 11 Labor Oscar awards. The Lifetime Achievement Award is presented to someone who has devoted their career to serving the labor movement. Terri Mast is a dedicated Seattle activist and a prominent figure in the cannery workers’ reform movement and the push for democracy in the Philippines. Born and raised in Seattle, Mast found her calling through her involvement in antiwar movements and women’s liberation. Her tireless efforts as a key figure in the Union of Democratic Filipinos (KDP) have brought many working-class women to the cause of establishing democracy in the Philippines. Congratulations, Terri!
