Kerline Piedra

Vice President Librarians

Since Joining Local 1321 over fifteen years ago, I have been a committed and dedicated
member. Since my appointment as Vice President of Librarians, I have worked with other
executive board members on our new working contract. I currently serve as union
representative for newly hired librarian positions. During the mayor Bloomberg’s era of budget
cuts to libraries I was the acting chairperson for the Budget Action Committee, where we
worked tirelessly to ensure that members had job security. Being part of the union has been
very rewarding and local 1321 continue to improve the lives of every member.
