Union Sues to Block Library Outsourcing RFP - ALA Magazine - 18/1/12

"The union’s issue is with the timing of the vote, which was taken two weeks before a California law went into effect that mandates transparency when cities contemplate leaving a county library system in order to contract out library services in documenting anticipated cost savings. “We have an opportunity to take action in advance of that law going into effect,” Council member Glen Becerra said at the time of the vote."

I posted on several US sites warning them that Simi Valley and LSSI where trying to push this through before AB438 came into effect, their actions are totally undemocratic and dishonest!
