PSAC North is composed of 3 Area Councils, one each for the NWT, Nunavut and Yukon.
Political action is the centrepoint of their work. The Area Councils help to steer the union politically, organizing a response to federal and local governments and to employers when their policies and regulations are not in our members’ interests. They may organize a lobby their political representatives, devise campaigns to educate and raise awareness of issues affecting our members, workers and the Canadian public.
Area Council members also work with community partners, build links with other Labour groups and send members to PSAC Regional and National Conventions.
Area Councils can…
Attend PSAC Conventions with full voice and vote.
Attend Regional Conventions with full voice and vote.
Submit resolutions to PSAC and PSAC North Regional Conventions.
Raise the profile of the union in the community by, for example, entering a PSAC float in a parade, sponsoring a sports team, or having an information table at a local fair.
Coordinate the circulation of petitions and postcards campaigns on demands such as pay equity, protection of pensions, and job security to enable members in your community to participate in national campaigns.
Be a forum for your representative on the Regional Council where she or he can seek your input on regional union policy and report to you about decisions made on your behalf.
Host a union school where members can come together to find out more about their rights.
