Employees of the West Haven Public Library voted unanimously to join Council 4 in a union representation election overseen by the Connecticut State Board of Labor Relations.

According to Colleen Bailie, the library's head of technology, "We need a voice at work to protect the services we provide to the public. Being part of Council 4 will make our voice stronger and fight cuts that would be devastating to West Haven's citizens."

Congratulations to our newest members in West Haven!
