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.

  • If you’re a young worker age 35 and under, fill out the PSAC BC self id form here to be added to our Young Worker Caucus email list.

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.

Each Committee also has its own leadership.

Here is the 2024 exeuctive list for the Vancouver Island Young Workers Committee:

  • Chair – Curtis Martin
  • Vice Chair – Kaj Stirler
  • Secretary – Yalan Yang
  • Treasurer – Jessica Dagasso

The executive can be contacted via email at
