Unhappy Employees Air Grievances @ the Salt City Public Library
SLC library employees slam director, board. (Salt Lake City Tribune, 3/15/2011)
Excerpt: Three employees plus a volunteer unloaded at the meeting, saying they were nervous but determined to get the message out. The unusual move follows Elder’s January overhaul of management. After all supervisors were forced to reapply for their positions, 18 people kept their jobs, four retired and five were removed from management into “special assignments.” Several veterans were shifted to different branches.
Elder defends the move as a means to upgrade library services, remain nimble and to adapt to changing needs and technologies. She told the board in January the change was remarkably smooth. Until now, criticism from the ranks has remained mostly anonymous.
