Earlier this week, delegates to the PSAC BC regional convention elected Brother Jamey Mills to serve as the new PSAC Regional Executive Vice-President for British Columbia.
Jamey is a long time union leader who began his career as an activist as the Young Workers Coordinator on the PSAC BC Regional Council and as a member of the BC Federation of Labour Young Worker Committee, where he sat on the BC Fed Executive Council.
Jamey has held a number of positions within his Local, UTE 20027 - Vancouver Tax Services Office, including Vice-President and Chief Shop Steward. He is the former President of the PSAC Vancouver Area Council, and has also served on the PSAC BC Regional Council as Metro Vancouver Coordinator and most recently as Alternate Regional Executive Vice-President.
"I look forward to working with the BC Regional Council, our Area Councils, Committees, Branches and Locals, and all the PSAC members in the province to continue enhancing and protecting our members' rights and making our workplaces better." says Jamey "And together with our allies in the community and in the labour movement we will keep working towards social, economic, and environmental justice in BC and beyond."
Todd Smith was elected as the Alternate Regional Executive Vice-President.
Bob Jackson, after an almost four decade career as a public service worker and union activist, stepped down as the PSAC Regional Executive Vice-President at the close of the convention, and will be enjoying his well-deserved retirement.
Congratulations to Jamey, Todd, and Bob!
