Job action strikes Okanagan Regional Library branches again

Unionized workers not pulling out items requested by patrons

Labour strife continues at local libraries.

Okanagan Regional Library has been advised that for the next two weeks, Canadian Union of Public Employee members will not administer the pull list.

“This means that items requested by customers located at other branches will not be pulled to be sent to the customer,” said Marla O’Brien, ORL’s public relations officer.

“The job action will result in delays with filling holds at all ORL branches, both union and non-union.”

CUPE staff at unionized branches — Cherryville, Falkland, Winfield, Oyama and Vernon — also continue not to collect late fees and money for room rentals and photocopiers.

Customers who wish to unblock an account with over $20 in fees, or who wish to pay for a meeting room can do so by sending payment to the ORL administration centre in Kelowna.
