In April, 2009, members of New York City’s three library unions, Queens Library Guild Local 1321, Brooklyn Library Guild Local 1482, and New York Public Library Guild Local 1930 held a rally at City Hall Park to protest the withholding of raises from the City’s budget simply because of an oversight by the City Counsel for not passing a budget modification for a budget that had already been approved. Local union presidents joined the DC37 Political Action Department on the steps of City Hall where they handed out buttons to City Council members as they arrived for work.
