"Frustrated employees, wanting a voice in the library's future and their own, organized a union. Recognizing workers' rights and the working relationship built with the city unions, the City-County Council unanimously passed a collective-bargaining ordinance a few years ago. However, when a majority of library workers signed AFSCME intent cards and requested union recognition, the Library Board refused."
"Indianapolis residents have had enough IMCPL drama. The Library Board should reconsider and recognize AFSCME as the employees' bargaining representative. Meet their elected union representatives at the bargaining table to get on with business in a positive manner without delay."
