Labor Programming at ALA Annual

At the upcoming ALA Annual Conference in Orlando, the AFL-CIO/ALA Labor Committee will be hosting a session entitled Building Stronger Libraries Through Collective Action on Monday, June 27th at 10:30 AM in OCCC Room W101B. From the conference program:
A century after the first library workers union was founded, library workers continue to work within labor unions to improve wages and working conditions. Unions also advocate on behalf of library employers, coordinating campaigns with library administrations to protect and increase funding and awareness. 
Speakers will highlight examples of labor-management collaborations for library advocacy, service enhancements, and share strategies and outline legal protections for those looking to form a union and organize through social media. 
Additionally, all are invited to attend the AFL-CIO/ALA Labor Committee annual meeting on Saturday, June 25th at 10:30am, OCCC Room W234, and to stop by Booth #2209 in the exhibition hall.
