Sno-Isle library workers make demands in plan to unionize
May 26, 2023 // The Sno-Isle library system has 23 locations and a mobile library in Snohomish and Island County, including libraries in Arlington, Lake Stevens, Marysville, Monroe, Mukilteo, Stanwood and Snohomish. The bargaining unit would represent about 370 workers. An open letter on the website for the proposed Sno-Isle union read that “too often decisions are made by people far removed from the day-to-day operations of community libraries. We, who are most impacted by these decisions, are rarely consulted.” Unionizing aims to give workers “equal footing” in decision-making that directly affects them, the letter said.
