So far 442 members of Local 1482 have added their names to our online petition which asks the library to stop requiring staff to sign out and in for meal breaks by de-activating that feature in SumTotal. Are you one of them? If not, we urge you to add your name to the list.
Getting over 400 signatures is a fantastic achievement, and thank you to all who have already signed. However, we believe we can can get more names and that the petition will carry more weight with library administration if we can do so.
Will you help us get to 700 signatures? If you haven't signed already, please do so. If you have, reach out to your friends and colleagues and ask them to sign. Here's the direct URL you can share with them: https://www.coworker.org/petitions/brooklyn-public-library-don-t-make-us-clock-out-for-meal-breaks.
Thank you for again doing your part! Staff shouldn't have to choose between signing out and in properly and helping library users. Supervisors should not have to spend inordinate amounts of time reconciling Sum Total records for their direct reports. Let's do all we can to make the collective voice of Local 1482 on this issue difficult to ignore.
