MainePMA Union Letter for Community Support
We are the staff of the Portland Museum of Art in Portland, Maine. We are unionizing for a seat at the table, in keeping with the values of the PMA. The PMA is committed to being an open, accessible, inclusive, and welcoming museum for all. We support this mission, but we know that these goals are not achievable without more equitable working conditions for staff.
On September 23 we petitioned for a union election with strong support among staff. Now we are asking for your support, too. Please write to the PMA's Leadership and Board of Trustees, and urge them to allow us to exercise our right to vote in a union election, without interference or delay. We have provided a template and encourage you to add your own comments.
