“WHAT WOULD PICASSO SAY” Rally RE-RESCHEDULED! Now Friday, March 5 at 4:30 PM, at the museum (BAAADD WEATHER).
For more than 2 years the Philadelphia Security Officers Union has been trying to improve the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Their calls for improved training, safety, worker retention, better wages and benefits have been ignored.
On February 22, due to all that is at risk, the museum guards broke their silence about the training deficiencies during a press conference on the “Rocky Step (read the KYW report here).”
In just 2 days, thousands of art lovers will crowd into the Philadelphia Museum of Art to see the new Pablo Picasso exhibit. Despite the fact that 60% of the guards at the museum state that they feel inadequately prepared to do their job to their fullest potential due to the lack of training, the museum continues to ignore our request to negotiate progressive training enhancements in their collective bargaining agreement.
In fact, most guards have not been through even a basic fire drill in more than a year. To read more of our findings, CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD OUR REPORT.
Pablo Picasso was a well-known advocate for the poor and for workers. We can’t help but ask; as his priceless works of art hang in the galleries, if Picasso were here today and heard of these horrible working conditions, “WHAT WOULD PICASSO SAY?”
Join us as we support the Philadelphia Security Officers Union in their struggle for justice and in celebrating the spirit of an artist who stood for equality and workers rights by attending the “WHAT WOULD PICASSO SAY” Rally ON MARCH 5, at 4:30 PM at the west entrance of the Museum.
