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.
On February 8, between the hours of 9am and 5pm, please call the following two KCLS administrators. Leave a voicemail if you do not get to speak with them directly.
Gary Wasdin, Library Director, 425.369.3232
Cynthia McNabb, Human Resources Director, 425.369.3207
“Hello, I was hoping to speak with (their name). My name is (your name). 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 also 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.“
