Area Councils

PSAC Area Councils are made up of members from different locals, branches, and components, grouped within regional areas. Area Councils are the political arm of our Union - they engage with and mobilize around PSAC and Labour campaigns and come together to lobby their political representatives, raise awareness of issues affecting our members, workers and the Canadian public. Area Councils also allow for discussion, collaboration and activism across Component lines. Area Council members also work with community partners, build links with other Labour groups and send members and resolutions to PSAC Regional and National Conventions.

There are currently 8 Area Councils in BC. They are located in Vancouver, Surrey/Delta/Langley (West Fraser Valley AC), the Fraser Valley, the Okanagan, North Vancouver Island, Victoria, Northwest BC (Prince Rupert / Terrace), and Northeast BC (Prince George and area). To get involved with an Area Council, check the calendar on the main page for upcoming meetings, contact the Chairpersons/Presidents at the link below, or call your Regional Office.

I would like to thank all and congratulate all the PSAC members who participated in our provincial Day of Action. And, of course, all the members who worked hard to help organize the event by plant gating, desk dropping, and coordinating the delivery of signs. Please pass this message on!We showed our employers – and our fellow members – yesterday that we are united, ready, and committed to defending public services, our collective agreements, and our working conditions. When we all work together, we are indeed a force to be reckoned with.

On May 1st PSAC members across BC will congregate outside of their worksites and hold signs that say "Standing Together for Public Services, Standing Together for Fairness”. It’s time to send a message to the government: We are united, ready and committed to defending our collective agreements, public services, and our working conditions.Why? Because we know this government is determined to try to take away as many of our negotiated benefits as possible.  That’s the example they’re setting.
