Rally for Philadelphia Museum of Art Workers

Attendees to AFSCME’s 45th International Convention brought the momentum and power they’ve generated in the Pennsylvania Convention Center to the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art on Wednesday to rally for their fellow AFSCME members who have been denied a fair contract for going on two years.

The Philadelphia Museum of Art Union, which organized with AFSCME as PMA Union Local 397 (AFSCME District Council 47) in August 2020, has been stonewalled by museum management, which has refused to compromise on measures that would provide staff with greater job security, pay and safety from harassment.

Not only were the workers buoyed by the show of solidarity as AFSCME members from across the country stood on the steps made famous by the movie “Rocky,” but the AFSCME family helped amplify the workers’ message to museum management: give these workers the contract they deserve.
