Rutherford [NJ] Librarians Settle Contract After Long Struggle

After two and a half years, a new contract for Rutherford Public Library employees will be voted on by the Rutherford mayor and council this week-a vote that will put to an end to the negotiations process that's been ongoing since late 2006.

The contract, which covers the 21 full- and part-time employee members of the Rutherford Library Association, features a 3.75-percent raise for employees in 2007 and a 3.25-percent raise for each subsequent year through 2010.

"We've achieved the goals we set out to achieve," said children's librarian Jane Tarantino, who was one of the two representatives in charge of negotiating the new terms.
