BC Regional Council
At the 1997 PSAC National convention the delegates passed a resolution supporting the Regionalization of the union. This established the following regions: Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario, National Headquarters, Prairies, British Columbia and the North.
Each region is represented on the Alliance Executive Committee by a Regional Executive Vice-President. The 7 REVPs along with the National President and the National Vice-President form the governing body of the Alliance.
The BC Regional Council
The B.C. Regional Council is composed of geographic representatives, equity representatives, and a representative each for the National Officers, Directly Chartered Locals and Health & Safety.
All positions on the BC Regional Council are elected from among the membership. The Regional Executive Vice-President is a full-time paid position. All other members of the council work in jobs represented by the union and serve the union as volunteers. In addition to chairing the BC Regional Council, the REVP represents BC on the Alliance Executive Committee, the body that runs the union nationally. He also represents the PSAC on the Executive Council of the BC Federation of Labour.
The Regional Councils meets twice a year in person and regularly via conference call to strategize on issues that affect PSAC members in B.C. The minutes of meetings will be posted on this website as well as any upcoming meetings.
If you have any items you wish the council to discuss or if you have any questions or concerns you can contact the REVP by email: email@example.com.
