We work in every capacity at the museum: in Visitor Services, Food and Beverage, Education & Programs, Information Systems, Facilities, and more. We are seeking improved labor relations through collective bargaining and a partnership with management that will finally help the Milwaukee Art Museum’s strategic vision become a reality.
In 1888, on opposite sides of the country, both the IAM and Milwaukee Art Museum made their beginnings. The two organizations have since shared the common purposes of improving the lives of their members and the communities they serve.
The durability of these two institutions is a testament to the strength of their missions and the vital need for both over the last 132 years. The employees who work at the Milwaukee Art Museum represent an important intersection between these two organizations. In November 2020, we won our historic wall-to-wall union election with 72% of votes cast. Since then, we have been bargaining for a first contract that recognizes the essential contributions of MAM workers to fulfilling the Museum’s mission and strategic direction.
