On October 19th, we filed our union recognition petition with our library President, Tonya Aikens. We have emailed her to request a meeting to discuss next steps in moving this process forward. We await a day and time to meet with her. We look forward to meeting with library leadership and securing our election dates!

In the meantime, we are so grateful to the many community members who have shown their commitment to us by signing our community support letter. If you’d like to add your name, you can do so here.

And if you work for the Howard County Library System and are interested in signing a union card and become a part of our organizing efforts, let us know by emailing hocolibraryworkersunited@gmail.com.
