King County Library System’s administration is fighting to keep its workers from receiving a fair contract. We need to show them that King County cares about its Library Workers, and will fight for them.
Please email the following three addresses.

Subject: Thank you and keep it up!
I first wanted to take the time to say thank you. I really care about the treatment of King County Library workers; and I was so glad to hear that you will be paying your employees their 2016 cost of living increases in full.
I hope as negotiations continue you will make appropriate Cost of Living Adjustments so that workers will not take a loss in pay, due to increased out of pocket medical benefits you are offering them. I hope that KCLS will recognize that Pages deserve benefits, and for KCLS to begin offering more 20-hour page positions.
Thank you for supporting you staff, I look forward to hearing more positive news from library workers about your willingness to meet their reasonable demands, and your continued efforts to give them a fair contract.
