Sotheby's Locked Out Art Handlers Deserve a Fair Contract! Sign This!

05.01.12 Marina Galperina

It’s time to end this. Forty-three unionized art handlers have been locked out by Sotheby’s since July 29, 2011. Sotheby’s wants to demolish their union, get rid of their healthcare and replace full-time skilled workers with unskilled temps, while business is going better than ever, with profits up 7%. The world’s largest auction house won’t negotiate a fair contract, preferring to stall and hire Jackson Lewis, the notorious law firm AFL-CIO calls the “number one union buster in America.” Don’t stand for this demonstrative, obnoxious exploitation.
