Political Action

Our union, along with concerned Canadians in communities across the country, has been working hard to save public services and protect jobs. We are all affected by cuts to services, and we must all take action to defend the public services PSAC members provide to Canadians.

This section contains news and information about PSAC's political action program in British Columbia. Visit the national website for background and more information on our campaigns.

PSAC BC welcomes the agreement reached this week by the leaders of the BC NDP and BC Green Party to form a new, progressive, provincial government. Both parties made strong commitments to addressing inequality, strengthening public services, taking action on climate, and implementing electoral and campaign finance reform. We also congratulate two new members of the BC Legislature who come from the PSAC family. Bowinn Ma, a PSAC member who works as a Project Engineer at Vancouver International Airport, was elected as the BC NDP MLA in North Vancouver-Lonsdale.

Sisters and Brothers, Like many of you, I stayed up late last night watching for the results and cheering the candidates on. While the outcome of our provincial election may not make itself clear for some time, one thing is clear: the majority of British Columbians voted for change. Regardless of what happens in the upcoming days, I am confident that BC is moving in a better direction. We all should be proud of the role PSAC members played in building a better BC.
