Young Workers Conference Call Out: Up Next – Young Workers Renewing Our Union Legacy!

To: PSAC-BC Young Workers

We are happy to announce that PSAC-BC Region will be having its first ever Young Workers conference for our members 30 years of age or younger from November 3-4, 2012 at the Sheraton Hotel in Richmond!

Under the theme, “Up Next: Young Workers Renewing Our Union Legacy!” we hope that PSAC young workers from across British Columbia will apply.

We hope to provide a unique opportunity for you to meet other PSAC young workers, network, discuss issues you find important, and attend interactive workshops such as social media and public engagement, what it means to be in a union and a union member, mobilizing for a cause, and building young worker committees.

Conference Objectives
  • To provide a unique opportunity to meet and network with other PSAC young workers;
  • To learn about what it means to be part of a union and the labour movement;
  • To discuss issues you find important through interactive workshops; and
  • To build the PSAC young worker movement and renew our Union legacy.

Please note that the application deadline is September 1, 2012 and conference spaces are limited. If accepted, participants from out of town may be covered for accommodation and travel.

Please note applications are now closed.

We also have a general survey that will help us to continue to plan young worker activities such as this, so please check that out here:
