Young workers

Young Workers 35 years and under identify young workers' issues and rights in the workplace, build and strengthen the relationship and involvement of young workers with the PSAC and build understanding of our common issues as workers, regardless of age or employment status.  These committees are established in accordance with Section 15 of the PSAC Constitution which enables the establishment of regional equity committees representing any of the four equity groups, or human rights committees, representing all of the four equity groups.

SJYWC 2015 ANNUAL REPORT On March 25th, 2015 the St. John’s Young Workers Committee (SJYWC) met for the first time and elected their executive. The Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary and Treasurer, each with their own roles and responsibilities, were the positions that were filled. To be honest I had no idea what I was getting involved with. I had no idea what I had signed up for. But accepting the Chair position of the SJYWC has turned out to be a great decision as it has been a rewarding experience.
