SASKATOON: Contract talks between the union representing 260 Saskatoon Public Library workers and library management will resume tomorrow morning.

The Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 2669, which represents the library workers, contacted library management on Wednesday to get back to the bargaining table.

Over the last three weeks, the library workers have held a series of rotating job actions to press their demands for a pay equity plan that will ensure equal pay for work of equal value.

The library workers, who are predominantly women, are seeking a plan that will bring wages in line with male civic workers.

The CUPE members voted 77% in support of taking job action at a membership meeting in September. They have been without a new agreement for 18 months.
