William P. Faust Library (Westland, MI) protest staff lay offs

About 30 people turned out at a William P. Faust Library Board meeting Wednesday in Westland to protest the layoff of five librarians in March.
The unionization effort — not the first in the library's history — came in the wake of a reorganization that resulted in the lay-off of five librarians. Those librarians identified themselves as the organizing leaders and filed an Unfair Labor Practice alleging the lay-offs were related to union activity.
It was a repeat of earlier meeting protests as library staff has voted to unionize and an initial meeting between the sides is expected in June.
