More museum unions!! This week we were joined by members of the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) Local 30 at MoMA PS1 (@IUOELocal30) Chris Haag (@allwasalmost), Robin Kaiser-Schatzlein (@robinsreport), and Gary T Murphy. We discuss their modest demand for the same pay as their colleagues at MoMA 53rd street. Plus: the precarious nature of 1099s, the stagnation of wages in the face of increasing rents, and the variety of expectations placed on art installers.

WE CAN’T EAT PRESTIGE! We joined the picket line in front of the Museum of Modern Art to greet the guests at their annual fundraiser “Party in the Garden” The MoMA workers organized their own “Party on the Pavement” to amplify their demand for a fair labor contract. We say hi to our friends Jeff and Maria, and learn what it’s like at the bargaining table. Email the MoMA director, let him know what you think: firstname.lastname@example.org
