Innovation has been at the forefront of the Whitney Museum’s mission since its founding. As staff members of the Whitney, we will build on this legacy by ensuring that, as a workforce, innovation comes with respect, integrity, and fairness. Through unionizing, we can maintain what we love about working at the Whitney while empowering ourselves to negotiate for safer working conditions, sustainable wages, and widespread job security and benefits. By gaining a collective voice in the terms and conditions of our employment, we will be able to create a just workplace that safeguards equitable, ethical, and inclusive treatment across all departments of the museum.
