Tentative Contract Agreement

The Union and The Seattle Public Library have reached a tentative contract agreement. A red-lined version of this agreement is now available

(PDF)Summary of Changes—This link has an overview of changes made to the contract via Tentative Agreement, including:

  • Details of COLA amounts for 2015-2018
  • Information about the up to 120 hours of additional paid time off to be granted to staff who took furloughs during the recession.

(PDF)Full text of Tentative Agreement—This is a link to the full tentative agreement, annotated with all changes made. Several portions of the contract were moved from one section to another without substantive changes. These will appear as a strike-out, but there will be a corresponding addition of the same or similar text in another section.

Mail-in ballots will be sent to all Local 2083 Members in Good Standing on approximately Friday, February 19th.

A General Membership Meeting will be held the same evening (Friday, 2/19) at the Central Library, Level 4 Room 1. Please note that this meeting is open only to union members in good standing. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
