Announcement: Tentative Agreement Reached!

September 30, 2019

The New Museum Union Bargaining Committee is extremely pleased to announce that we have reached a tentative agreement with the Museum on a five-year contract after a marathon weekend of bargaining that began Friday morning, September 27, 2019.

The contract provides for significant increases in wages—in the first year, an average of 8.2% for full-timers and 15.7% for VS/Store—reductions in cost for the EPO health plan, increases in PTO, and it establishes legally enforceable workplace rights, such as a binding grievance procedure, for the first time.
