All they have been asking for is a fair contract for their hard work, and I think it is disgraceful that you are trying to withhold their retroactive pay increases, which you had already budgeted for. Please do the right thing and give your workers a fair contract and their deserved pay. Thank you.”

Subject: I support KCLS Library Workers

Hello,

I’m writing as a concerned citizen, library patron, and supporter of fellow-workers. KCLS workers deserve a fair contract and it is unconscionable that you are trying to deny them retroactive pay increases for the year 2016. You budgeted to give them that money and have more than $52,000,000 in savings. What reason could you have for not giving them their pay increases?

Please do the right thing and give your workers a fair contract, and their deserved pay back.

Thank you,

(Your Name)
