From the petition organizers: MISU, the security guard union at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts gained a contract for 2-3 years in which outsourcing was taken off the table. The contract was ratified resoundingly last night.

Help us fight back.  Please sign our petition to Malcolm Rogers, Director of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and demand that he and the Museum management:

“DO NOT OUTSOURCE YOUR MUSEUM GUARDS!”

      Because justice for workers must come first, not profits.

      As an MFA member and a Union member (AFSCME 3650), I object to this further corruption of the museum at the expense of its workers. Isn't it enough to have "Bank of America" carved in stone (literally!) on the building's main entry? Rogers, you're a corporate hack, masquerading as a humanist benefactor.

      You really should start treating your employees fairly. Union busting is simply not acceptable behavior.

      People first! The priority of the museum can not always be what is the least expensive option; the welfare of their employees must come first! I am a member of the MFA and I would hope that this institution would practice some integrity.

      Outsourcing is the latest unionbusting technique. Pure & Simple.
