New York Public Library Guild Local 1930

About Us

The New York Public Library Guild/Local 1930 represents the staff members of the New York Public Library within various titles. We represent Library Clericals, Library Technical Assistants, Library Information Assistants, Librarians at various levels, and other titles.
Local 1930 was formed in 1968 as a result of the ferment caused by the civil rights, women's and anti-war movements. Since then we have continued to be an activist union. We believe libraries are the backbone of democracy and unions are the vehicle we use to defend our economic rights. We hope everyone who reads this will help carry out the tasks necessary to continue this proud tradition.

Public Relations Committee

 In April 2011 a new Public Relations Committee was formed to help improve the flow of information and communication between Local 1930 and its members. The committee consists of the following individuals who are waiting to hear from you.

Valentin Colon
Anthony Wyche

So if you have something to say or a question to ask please reach out to one of the committee members.

 All Local 1930 members should be aware that if they are in need of union support or want to discuss an issue concerning their work site or position within the Library that a union representative is only an email or phone call away.

Are we City Workers?

We in NYPL are not New York City employees and the New York Public Library is not a City agency. We are City funded and are subject to many of the same contractual obligations and rules as City employees but we are in fact employees of the “Astor, Lenox and Tilden Foundation” a private/non-profit foundation. And you the members or Local 1930, along with our Brothers and Sisters in Local 374 are, THE NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY.
