Sun Sep 9 2012 (Updated 09/11/12)SEIU1021 Supporters and Workers Occupy de Young for Contract Without Concessions
On Friday, September 7th, members from the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) 1021 blocked the entrance to the de Young art museum in San Francisco. Nineteen people were arrested, and the attendees at the museum's “Friday Nights at the Museum” event were greeted with loud chants, singing, and civil disobedience.
According to Anna Bakalis from SEIU 1021, the management at the museum is intimidating and using “anti-worker tactics” to make cuts to the salaries of the “least paid workers” employed there.
In response, members of the Service Employees International Union marched in on the Friday night event, and chanted and sang while blocking the museum entrance. SEIU members and supporters are urging management to stop withholding information used in collective bargaining, to stop lowering wages of the lowest paid workers, and to stop giving the managers raises.
