Administrative services workers matter. Imagine what a day in your workplace would look like without administrative support
We’ve imagined it and it’s not an appealing image. It would be like a missing piece of a puzzle. A day without administrative services workers means important tasks won’t get done. Everyone else’s productivity will fall.
The work of administrative support benefits colleagues, managers and the public. They're professionals, problem-solvers and innovators. They have the answers when nobody else can help. They get the job done. Yet, they’re routinely overworked and underpaid. Their value to the workplace is often unrecognized.
The BCGEU represents more than 12,000 administrative services workers in a wide range of jobs with government ministries and independent employers, such as health care, education and community social services.
Administrative services workers do important work. They make valuable and significant contributions every day. They deserve respect. Our workplaces couldn’t function without the support of administrative professionals.
