Stand with Unjustly Fired MAF Workers this Black Friday!

Calling all AFSCME Maryland Activists

For Black Friday this year on Friday, November 29,  we will be demonstrating in solidarity with unfairly treated workers at the Marciano Art Foundation (MAF). 

Join other workers, unionists, and artists from across the country will be showing support for these workers as they fight to join our AFSCME family. We stand in solidarity with these 70 visitor services associates, leads and docents, who are organizing for basic things like a water fountain, set schedules, and to be paid more than minimum wage.

Join us by RSVPing now!

Here are the facts:

  • The Marciano Art Foundation is an LA art museum, founded and backed by Paul and Maurice Marciano. These two brothers own around 30% of Guess Jeans, worth about $350,000,000. Guess has a history of union busting and labor violations.
  • Nearly 70 workers at the MAF were laid off just four days after filing a petition to form their union.
  • Now the Marciano brothers have abruptly closed the museum due to "low attendance"—a flimsy excuse.

Let's show Guess and the Marciano family what union solidarity can really do.

Wear Green or Black and meet us at the Bass Pro Shop parking lot entrance (7000 Arundel Mills Cir., Hanover, MD 21076) at 9am. If you're late, meet us at Guess Jeans in "neighborhood 4".
