Plymouth Library Workers Protest Glass Ceiling

Library workers at Plymouth Public Library have been handing out pamphlets and wearing buttons that read "End the Glass Ceiling: Library Staff are Town Employees Too". The pamphlets additionally state the following:
“As a predominantly female group, we believe we are being discriminated against on the basis of gender through the town’s refusal to provide wages and benefits that are provided by it to predominantly male and mixed gender employee groups.”
The union has pointed out that positions at the library that require a university education pay less than positions elsewhere with the city that require a high school diploma only. Contract negotiations between the union and city administration are ongoing.
