You are the heart of the art museum’s mission. You deserve a seat at the table when decisions are made impacting your jobs and livelihoods. Milwaukee Art Museum (MAM) management owes it to their employees to put their inclusive community vision into practice under the Calatrava’s wings.
Part of MAM’s responsibility to the Milwaukee community is to pay a livable wage to all of its workers, recognizing the burden that low wages, limited benefits, and precarious scheduling place on families and on the community. I call on MAM management to truly listen to their employees and negotiate a just contract in a spirit of partnership to strengthen the art museum through improved labor relations.
I wish you strength and solidarity in the ongoing efforts to create a workplace where your voices will be heard.
President, Wisconsin AFL-CIO
