Sotheby’s Art Handlers Resolve Contract Dispute: IT’S OVER!

Proof that OWS helps? Ask the Sotheby’s Art Handlers.

Teamsters Local 814, which represents the 42 workers of the Sotheby’s art handlers’ union, has settled their 10-month dispute with the Sotheby’s auction house.

Crain’s New York reports that the three-year deal, reached in the last week, boosts wages 1% in each year, lifts the starting salary to $18.50 an hour, and maintains the workers’ benefits.

We’ve been reporting about the Sotheby’s art handlers’ lockout from the beginning and we’re glad that a resolution that protects union jobs has been achieved.
