Laura Aucoin is a young worker from BC who travelled to Guatemala in February 2016 as part of the PSAC Social Justice Fund's Education In Action delegation.

My experience at the BCFed Renewal conference was extremely interesting.  As I’ve mentioned in previous reports attending BCFed events, the comparison between municipal, provincial, and federal unions is quite interesting as the issue that member face vary greatly.  It is informative to hear different perspectives and learn about the different union structures, as well as to hear how the same issue (example: accommodation) can affect members in such a variety of ways.  It was refreshing in that it challenges the thought process and provides a forum to exchange information.
