Palmerston North librarians gather to support UCOL colleagues

Posted By TEU on May 23, 2016 |

At 5pm today at the UCOL Library, representatives of library staff from the City Library, Massey, Te Wānanga o Aotearoa, and local schools will meet in a show of support for UCOL Library staff whose jobs are threatened.

“We all want to show our UCOL colleagues support as they try and save their jobs,” says Chris Good, Massey librarian and Tertiary Education Union (TEU) spokesperson.

“Retaining skilled, experienced and qualified librarians is essential for navigating an increasingly complex knowledge economy to ensure the ability to access information for students, businesses and society in a digital age,” says Good. “Our city needs to keep our librarians, not get rid of them”
