Management stalls staffless libraries
by Martina O’Leary
The Local Government Management Agency (LGMA) has confirmed that no staffless library services will open until negotiations with IMPACT are concluded. The assurance was given when representatives from the union’s Local Government division and library vocational groups met agency officials last month.
As well as staffless libraries, the talks covered staffing levels for professional and non-professional grades, the library management system, and qualifications. A further meeting is being scheduled.
