The Not-So-Odd Couple: Libraries and Unions.
Organized at the 2004 WLA conference, the Interest Group for Library Unions (IGLU) sponsored its first-ever conference session, "The Not-So-Odd Couple: Libraries and Unions," at the 2005 WLA conference. A panel of librarians from three unionized libraries gave an overview of Washington library unions (aka bargaining units or "locals") and the issues that their own unions address. Also on the panel was an organizer from the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), which represents most of the organized public library workers in the state of Washington.
