Museum Leadership and Self-serving Bias

****** Given Leadership Matters' ongoing posts about the need for equitable treatment of museum workers, we would be remiss if we didn't mention the Tenement Museum, the most recent of New York City's museums to have its education, retail, and visitor services staff unionize. This is the third time the Tenement Museum's staff has tried to join Local 2110 UAW (United Auto Workers), the union that is also home to workers at Bronx Museum of the Arts, Museum of Modern Art, the New Museum, and New-York Historical Society. Since collective bargaining just began, it will be awhile before staff knows whether their issues with overtime compensation, low wages, and no health insurance will bear fruit. Whether pay equity and closing the gender pay gap is also on the table isn't known. Joan Baldwin
