Carnegie Library Workers To Launch Unionization Drive

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - Carnegie Library employees will soon be gathering at the United Steelworkers headquarters to launch a union organizing drive.

The United Steelworkers said that employees from the library will congregate at the union's international headquarters downtown on Monday, June 24 at 7 p.m.

The United Library Workers, a committee of the city's library employees, started to explore the idea of unionizing last summer.

They say they want to create a better work environment, and they also have concerns about pay and benefits.

"The library works because we do," said Emily Miller, a librarian who works in the Office of Programs and Partnerships, in a press release.

"In order to do our best work for the community, we need a union to secure the support and respect we deserve."
