Subject: Thank you and keep it up!

Hello,

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.

Thank you,

(Your Name)
