Patrick Joseph ANTLE|
Labour leader. Born Fox Cove, Burin. Antle represented the fishermen of Fox Cove at the founding meeting of the Newfoundland Federation of *Fishermen qv 1951. At that meeting he was elected treasurer, a position he held until 1961 when he was elected General Secretary. In 1971, until his resignation in 1973, he held the office of President. At the time of his resignation membership in the Federation was on the decline (probably because of the formation of the Newfoundland Fishermen, Food and Allied Workers Union and the Newfoundland Government's decision to discontinue funding the Federation).
