Support Striking PMA Workers

Unionized workers at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (PMA) are on strike.

These museum workers in Philadelphia are fighting on behalf of all museum workers.

They are fighting against a Board that has paid to hire union-busting lawyers instead of negotiating in good faith.

The museum is paying its Director upwards of $700,000 a year, while its unionized workers ask that their minimum pay is raised to $16.75 per hour.

I ask that you please consider supporting these museum workers, either by sending emails on their behalf to the PMA Director and Board through this website or, if you are able, by contributing to the strike fund here.

To find out more, check out the PMA Union website.
