    Academy Museum Employees Call for Recognition of New Union

    June 29, 2022 // This, combined with the grassroots organizing happening at other museums and businesses, inspired Guzman and other employees to begin their organizing with the help of AFSCME 36, which has been unionizing several major museums over the past few years under the labor org Cultural Workers United. Among the museums whose workers have recently negotiated contracts are the Guggenheim Museum in New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles. Along with the formal letter requesting such recognition, AMWU included letters of support from 15 California state assembly members as well as Los Angeles city council members Nithya Raman and Paul Koretz, the latter of whom represents the district the museum is located in. TheWrap has reached out to the Academy for comment. Bill Kramer, J. Raul Guzman, Claudia Gonzalez, Dolores Huerta,
