As has been reported elsewhere this week, 2,400 Toronto city librarians have abandoned membership in the Toronto Civic Employees Union (TCEU) Local 416. Last Tuesday, a total of 1,309 librarians cast votes on whether to stay or leave, and an overwhelming 1,037 voted in favour of leaving and forming their own union.
“The simple [explanation] is we want to speak for ourselves as library workers,” says Rob Rolfe, chair of the TCEU’s library division.
