E-mail Print PDF

CWA Local 1120's newest members at the Monroe Free Library in Poughkeepsie, NY, unanimously ratified their first contract that provides wage increases and improvements in benefits and working conditions.

The staff joined the union in September 2014 after the library board attempted to block workers from organizing. They then launched their successful mobilization campaign with support from local elected officials and the community. In a NLRB election, they voted 11-0 for a union voice.

The unit includes workers in reference, circulation and children departments; clerks; and coordinators.
