Young Workers

In the PSAC-BC Region young workers who are thirty-five years of age and under actively come together to share their experiences, discuss common struggles, and analyze the issues they face at work and in the Union.

We first formed as a Caucus in 2002 through the Solidarity Campaign for Young Workers and held many events and educational opportunities designed to appeal to younger workers. In 2012, the PSAC formally recognized the need for Young Worker Committees in the Regions. BC was the first to form such geographically-based committees, beginning with Vancouver Island, and soon after for the BC Mainland and Haida Gwaii.

Young Workers have a political voice - for PSAC BC there is a Regional Council Young Workers Coordinator, Vanessa Miller. Each Committee also has its own leadership. Please contact Brittany Wiens for the Vancouver Island YW Committee and Maggie Humen for the BC Mainland and Haida Gwaii YW Committee.

Here are the minutes of the various Young Workers Committee and Caucus meetings.

Over thirty PSAC members from across BC met in Vancouver last weekend at the 2016 PSAC B.C. Regional Conference for Young Workers. The conference provided participants with an opportunity to learn more about our union and hear from and share experiences with those in leadership positions within PSAC and other unions as well as in community and social justice organizations. The participants also took workshops designed to give them the skills and tools to help them organize their peers to effect positive change inside and outside of PSAC.
