The article focuses on the union highlights in 2009-2010 based on the Progressive Librarians Guild (PLG) project Union Librarian, a blog of library union news. It says that 2,400 Toronto librarians voted to leave the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 416 to establish their own union on March 2009. The Murray-Green Library at the Roosevelt University in Chicago, Illinois received the 2010 John Sessions Memorial Award in recognition for its efforts to work with the labor community.
