Coming from a household of lifetime union membership as well as longtime MAM membership, we are fully supportive of the unionization of the full staff of the Milwaukee Art Museum. Union membership has provided us with benefits to protect our health, living wage incomes and retirement status. It has afforded us the privilege of bearing the cost of membership in this beautiful institution. We feel that the staff who care for MAM should be afforded the same benefits. We also feel this is perfectly congruent with the Strategic Direction and social justice position that the museum is striving for.
