Skokie Public Library Workers United (Illinois)

 First Union Contract Brings Pay Increases, Protections to Skokie Public Library - SEIU Local 73 (

Skokie Public Library workers have unanimously ratified their first contract, bringing significant changes to the workplace.

The new union contract includes language for terminations for just cause and establishes a grievance process that allows workers to exercise their rights when facing discipline. Library Workers were previously at-will employees without any protections from wrongful termination.

Library workers also won retroactive wage increases, guaranteed sick time for full and part-time employees, paid holidays, vacation time, and the ability to roll over half a personal day into the following year. Additionally, library workers won partial tuition reimbursements should they decide to pursue higher education.
