Yay, our admin team announced that they're closing the library as of the end of today.
Now if they had engaged in a dialogue with us back on Wednesday when we started advocating for the closure of the library, rather than fighting or ignoring us, then we would have been able to focus on planning for the closure. Instead, we now have a few hours to figure everything out.
I get it's a crisis, but include your team in discussions and decisions and you'll get better results.
@dbs I'm sorry.
@dbs I’m hearing this story everywhere. Library administration refusing to engage with workers on something this important is a real problem…
@misty Yeah. I get that it's a high pressure time for them, but that's when admins should want to pull together their team to get the best possible advice and ideas. *sigh*
