Message to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston from its guard force:
DON'T OUTSOURCE THE PERMANENT COLLECTION!
Rally for the Guards at "Art in Bloom"
SATURDAY, April 28, 11:30AM-2PM
In front of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (Huntington side)
465 Huntington Ave, Boston MA
(Green Line E to Museum of Fine Arts; Orange Line to Ruggles)
RSVP on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/events/275860625840007/
The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston is seriously considering OUTSOURCING
our guard union. Some have been working there for as many as 30 years.
We would lose our status as museum employees and would be forced to
apply for our jobs to an outside contractor with a bad reputation with
their workers. (IF WE GET RE-HIRED) The museum would have non-union
workers doing our union jobs! Let's give the top 1% our 100% effort in
stopping these attacks!
****This is "THE ART IN BLOOM RALLY" and is a big event for the MFA.
Many galleries are fitted with flower arrangements to compliment a
specific piece of art. This draws thousands in three days. Our next
very important negotiations are the first week of May.****
****WE WOULD LIKE YOUR SUPPORT!****
****KEEP THE PRESSURE ON!****
In addition to coming to the rally, here's what else you can do to
support the guards:
