PSAC BC Young Workers Survey

There are several pressing issues facing young workers in today’s workplaces, including childcare, parental leave, health and safety, and precarious work. For those in the public service, young workers are also contending with the government’s increased reliance on 90-day hires, contracting out, and other forms of temporary work, which continue to create unstable working conditions for young employees.

PSAC brings young workers together to talk about these issues and share ideas through Young Workers’ Committees (YWC). Their primary purposes of these Committees are to educate young workers about the labour movement as a whole; to engage, mobilize and retain young workers; and raise awareness about the critical issues that young workers face today.

PSAC members 35 years of age and under can take part in their regional Young Workers’ Committee. In BC there are two PSAC YWC: one for Vancouver Island and one for the mainland and Haida Gwaii.

Within YWC, young workers can strategize, creatively address issues within the union and the workplaces that are important to younger members, support each other, and mobilize as a force that will move their issues forward.

To assist with this work, and better engage young workers in YWC and the union more generally, we’ve created this short survey that we invite you to take:
