On Thursday 18 November, staff across Geelong Regional Libraries will be staging a 24-hour strike for better wages and conditions.

Geelong Regional Libraries has been ranked as the best public library service in Victoria for six years in a row, but the wages of its staff are some of the lowest in the state. Despite this, the member councils that fund the service have failed to step up, and management are attempting to push through years of below-inflation pay increases.

Union members and supporters will be gathering outside the Geelong Library & Heritage Centre, Geelong West Library and Belmont Library from 8.15am onwards. There’ll be a solidarity barbecue at the Geelong Library & Heritage Centre at 12.30pm.

If you can, support the striking workers by joining them from 8.15am onwards, or come to their barbecue at 12.30pm!

What happens at one workplace sets the standard for every other, and a win by Geelong Regional Libraries workers will be a win for workers all across Geelong.
