UUP Liaison Report
Dan Harms

UUP has reached a tentative agreement with the State of New York. The Negotiations Team will be meeting a week from today to determine whether the agreement will be sent to the membership. I am not authorized to release further details.

Matthew Smith, Elizabeth Gaff, and Heather Whalen Smith have compiled information regarding librarians in UUP-represented libraries. Here's a brief takeaway:

* Since 2019, the number of librarians employed at these libraries has declined by 11.5% (7.2% for full time librarians, 47.2% for part-time librarians).

* From 2013 and 2023, the number of librarians at the full and distinguished rank has dropped from 45 to 34.

* The number of librarians graduating from M.LS and equivalent programs has dropped by 5% since 2019, while projections indicate that librarian jobs will increase by 6% between 2021-31.
