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.

It's time to raise the minimum wage! PSAC members joined with hundreds of people in Vancouver on the Canadian National Day of Action for a $15 Minimum Wage. British Columbia has the lowest minimum wage in Canada and this leaves full-time workers living thousands of dollars below the poverty line. We believe that work should lift you out of poverty, not keep you in it. It's time for the BC government to make a real increase the minimum wage so that nobody is left behind.
