Take Action Against Public Library Cuts!

Posted on

Send a message to Education Minister Clyde Jackman that you value your public library and the skilled professional librarians and support staff needed to develop and provide resources and services in your community. We have created the following template message that will be emailed to Clyde Jackman and CCed to the MHA for your district on your behalf:

Subject line: We want our Librarians back!

Dear Clyde Jackman,

I urge you to reconsider the devastating cuts to the Newfoundland and Labrador Public Libraries. Professional Librarians and skilled support staff are essential to developing and providing resources and services that support communities in our province.

Please get back to let me know what you have done in response to my message.

    What’s even more appalling are that some cuts to Library staff are being done illegally.

    For example, on “The Western Star” news article entitled “Closing the book” dated April 5, 2013, I learned that a Manager of Technical Services with Provincial Information and Library Resources Board lost her job while on maternity leave. Very shocking indeed.

    This move indicates that the Newfoundland and Labrador Government doesn’t value employee rights during times of austerity.

    Due to the lack of respect for employee rights, I hope that more Newfoundlanders and Labradorians will fight the cuts to our knowledge centres, and ensure employee rights are protected without question.

    Those of us that work for him can’t leave our names here without risk of layoff. Nobody supports these cuts and find it incomprehensible. The same can be said for many other senseless cuts. There is no investigative journalism left – can your remaining staff fill the journalism void?
