Locked out workers and supporters demonstrate at Sotheby's New York

Art Handlers at Sotheby’s Auction House in New York were locked out by the company after they refused to sign new contracts that would have lead to the breaking of their union contract and half of them being replaced by outsourced temporary workers.

So determined are Sotheby’s, a company that makes huge profits and last year doubled the pay of it’s CEO to almost $6 million, to break the union that they are using Jackson Lewis, the notorious union busting firm Jackson Lewis.

ACTION: You can send an email to Sotheby’s senior managment in the UK, asking them to pressure their US colleagues to negotiate fairly – Take action here.
