Hi

Whilst I am a child of the sixties myself and not known for an over
insistence on political correctness I think 'staffing' would be the more
correct, up to date and particularly in the case of libraries accurate
terminology to use.

Alan,

What David said ...

It's more complex than your message suggests, and it all depends on
local
circumstances.  There is not necessarily anything wrong with single
staffing, providing a proper risk assessment has been carried out and
measures put in place to remove/mitigate or plain manage any risks
identified.  Of course, in some circumstances a risk assessment will
reveal
issues that cannot adequately be managed, particularly in urban
environments, and single staffing would not then be acceptable.

Salaries - managing a branch library can be defined in different ways.
We
have a supervisor for each library, supported by Cluster Managers
(Librarians) each responsible for several libraries, and a Support Unit
and
Management Team to provide further support and back-up.  Many of our
supervisors are paid Scale 3, some with additional responsibilites are
paid
Scale 5.    A model along these lines seems to make best use of
higher-paid
staff - there are other models where each library is managed separately.

You must have a very strong Unison branch indeed ... Sc4 is a fairly
common
grade here in Yorkshire to be a Assistant in charge of a small part time
branch. Its not bad practice its hard economic reality. Librarians start
at
5/6.
