Resolution on Domestic Partnership Benefits for ALA Staff
Adopted at 1993 Annual Conference
Whereas, many local governments, corporations, colleges, and universities are recognizing the need to cover homosexual couples under benefit packages;
Whereas, the American Library Association has traditionally been in the fore on the promotion of equality for gays and lesbians, most notably with their Policy 54.3 and others;
Therefore Be It Resolved that the Social Responsibilities Round Table urges that a committee be established to review all ALA Headquarters personnel policies and employee benefits to ensure that no discrimination exists and that domestic partnership is recognized; and
Be It Further Resolved that any necessary arrangements with insurers and others to bring this into effect be implemented by 1 January, 1994.
