Film Forum Workers In NYC ‘Go Union’ With UAW Local 2110

(NEW YORK CITY) – In April, Film Forum Workers petitioned the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) for an election to establish their Union with Technical, Office and Professional Union Local 2110/United Auto Workers (UAW), which represents Cultural and Educational Workers across New York and New England.

IndieWire now reports the Film Forum Workers have unanimously voted to Unionize with the UAW.  The Non-Profit Cinema Film Forum reportedly employs 50 Workers.

Film Forum Employees sought a more equitable, ethical and sustainable workplace with decisions about employment terms – just hiring practices, health and safety standards for Front Line Staff, a holistic approach to organizational development, fair compensation and Workplace Rights - negotiated on equal grounds with leadership through a fair contract.

“We’re very excited to have Film Forum Staff organizing with our Union,” UAW Local 2110 President Maida Rosenstein said in a press release.  “It’s fantastic to see so many Workers in the Arts and Culture Unionize.  Collective bargaining will give Workers at Film Forum a voice in their employment conditions.  Ultimately, Unionizing will make Film Forum a stronger, more sustainable workplace for all.”
