On April 29 members of our newly-minted Unit 4 met with the employer. According to Unit 4 representatives, the most contentious issue related to research done by contract librarians. The employer’s position is that research is not a job requirement for contract librarians, which was hotly contested by Unit 4 members at the table.
The May 6th Unit 4 bargaining session has been cancelled. As soon as a new date is set, meeting details will be shared. Official Updates from Unit 4 bargaining are posted here as these become available.
