Union Excluded from Policy Discussions
Service Employees International Union Local 205, which represents staff at Chattanooga Public Library, was recently excluded from discussions regarding the library's adoption of city personnel policies. A union representative stated that this exclusion is a violation of the memorandum of understanding between the city and the union. A petition had earlier been signed by staff members requesting that the library board postpone voting on this issue until board members met and discussed the proposed changes with the union.
