Library union: no confidence in director

Anonymous Patron writes "Union-represented workers in the King County Library System, a large suburban library system near Seattle, have cast an overwhelming vote of no confidence in the system's longtime director, Bill Ptacek. The Seattle Times Reports Ninety-two percent of the 388 librarians and library assistants voting said they don't have confidence in Ptacek's management or leadership, at or near the top of the complaint list is Ptacek's policy of grouping libraries into "clusters." Each cluster has a single manager who can assign workers to any of its libraries."

"Clustering" must be stopped

I wish the King County library staff good luck. The Free Library of Philadelphia administration cited King County as an inspiration when they unveiled their destructive McBranch plan last winter. Luckily, the union and the Friends soundly defeated them. I hope for the same in King County.
