First Union Contract Brings Pay Increases, Protections to Skokie Public Library - SEIU Local 73 (seiu73.org)
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.
