Please note we are holding elections for the vacant position of Young Worker representative for the Prairie Region Council. This notice should be sent to all local contacts requesting they ensure all the young worker members (30 years of age or younger as of date of the call out) in their locals are provided this information.
As the representative for young workers in my region, I have heard time and time again the need for a place for young workers to gather on an ongoing basis. Please help to spread the word to the young workers in your region and encourage them to join the "PSAC Young Workers United!" Facebook group and engage in this constructive dialogue.
