Regional Womens Committees

Welcome to the union!

The Public Service Alliance of Canada has a proud history of activism by the women of the union. They have been at the heart of our major strikes and campaigns. On a daily basis they are active in PSAC locals, informing, organizing and representing members. Our accomplishments as a union reflect their vision, energy, and commitment. Women keep our union vital and strong.

PSAC women have always challenged the union to address complex issues, to develop alternative ways of being effective, and to reach out to those members who, in the past, have been on the margins of union activity. Through their effort and determination, we are building an inclusive union solidly based in principles of justice and equality.

At the same time, we know we can count on the support of PSAC women. They bring to the union a solid belief in the necessity of collective action by workers. Whenever the call goes out, PSAC women respond with creativity, enthusiasm and tireless effort. They put their hearts on the line and they walk the talk!

As a focal point for mobilizing women members, the Regional Women’s Committees are essential to a strong union presence in the regions. They embody the spirit of grassroots organizing and membership participation. Member-based structures such as the RWCs are the vehicles that directly contribute to our power, effectiveness and relevance as a dynamic union.

Get involved today! Contact the PSAC BC Women’s Coordinator Karen Sutton or PSAC Women’s Rep Monica Urrutia.
