PSAC BC monthly email newsletter
The Vancouver Regional Office sends a monthly mail-out to Local Presidents, Regional and Area Council members and Equity Committee members. The mail-outs usually contain posters for upcoming education opportunities and meetings, information from the BC Fed and CLC, and other things that may be of interest. We are now able to make this information available to all PSAC members, via email. This is a great way to keep up to date with what’s going on with your Union!

psacbc.com has various RSS feeds: look for the RSS icon , or point your news reader to http://psacbc.com/feed/. What is RSS? RSS allows you to see when sites from all over the internet have added new content. You can get the latest headlines and articles in one place, as soon as they are published, without having to remember to visit each site every day. In a world overloaded with information, this can be quite handy – it takes the hassle out of staying up-to-date by automatically showing you the latest information you’re interested in. There is some debate about what RSS actually stands for, but Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary is generally accepted. How do I use RSS? In general, you need something called a news reader. This is a piece of software that checks RSS feeds and lets you read any new articles that have been added to them. There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications. Here are some recommendations:
- Pluck (plugin for Internet Explorer & Firefox, free)
- AmphetaDesk (cross-platform news reader, free)
- Bloglines (online news reader, free)
- or here’s a huge list at directory.google.com
Once you have your news reader installed & configured, look for any of these icons to add that website to your news feed. You can also add the PSAC BC feed to various personalized web services: add psacbc.com to Google add psacbc.comto MyAOL add psacbc.com to My Yahoo!
