"By joining together in a union we have been able to ensure that we are all treated fairly and equitably. We are professionals and deserve to be treated as such."

- Darryl Clark President AFSCME Local 2477 Library of Congress

 “Our Library of Congress Professional Guild, AFSCME Local 2910, has been working toward the collaborative creation of a progressive workplace since 1976, in an institution that has had continuous union representation since 1917. Our Guild has been in the forefront of improving working conditions and communication at the Library; the list of tangible accomplishments our union has successfully advocated for is extensive: flexible work schedules; credit hours; transit fare subsidy; telework; merit selection plan; health and safety procedures; dispute resolution; family-friendly leave; disability rights; employee leave bank; lactation center. A union provides both a voice and a context for change that will make a difference for your yourself, for your library, and for the patrons and researchers you serve. Get organized and get involved.”
