This Black Friday, Stand in Solidarity with MAF Workers

This Black Friday, November 29, join us in a demonstration of solidarity with unfairly treated workers at the Marciano Art Foundation. Workers, unionists, and artists from across the country will be showing support for these workers as they fight to join our union family, and we are with them.

We will be showing our support at Guess stores in Auburn, Bellevue and TulalipDon't forget to wear green or black.

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.

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.

Read more about these workers' tenacity and what they've faced here.

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