When MAM submitted their Statement of Position (SOP) to the National Labor Relations Board on 09-14-2020, they requested a manual, in-person election to be held at the museum.

We strongly disagree with this position due to the current furlough of MAM staff and the safety risks posed by the pandemic.  We underscore our request for a mail-in ballot election which protects the health and safety of MAM workers during this COVID-19 crisis and ensures that every worker, regardless if they are furloughed or not, has the right to vote in the election.

We are waiting to hear the NLRB’s decision on this issue.
