YOUR course is a participatory, action-oriented course for PSAC members 35 years of age and under. Participants will meet other young workers to share experiences, discuss and analyze the issues they face at work, in the union, and in society.

Participants will talk about their rights as workers, find out what it means to be in a unionized work environment, and a member of a union like the PSAC. They will also share and learn about global issues and the role of young workers in the dynamic movement for social justice.

The course takes place Saturday and Sunday April 29/30, 9AM to 5PM at the Pinnacle Harbourfront Hotel in Vancouver. Participants must be members in good standing and self-identify as Young Workers, 35 years of age and under. Participants who are not in travel status will receive a $50 allowance per day. Participants who are in travel status will be reimbursed for expenses (travel, parking, meals) as per the PSAC policy, upon completion of an expense claim form. The deadline for applications is 4PM March 24th, 2017
