New Mexico art collective seeks union, management resists

SANTA FE – Workers at a New Mexico art collective are seeking to unionize, they said in a statement.

Employees at the Santa Fe-based art collective Meow Wolf are seeking to unionize under the Communications Workers of America umbrella.

The workers said in a statement Tuesday that they will “demand a seat at the table in matters of employment protection, diversity and inclusion, pay equity, clear paths to advancement and creativity within the company.”

The National Labor Relations Board says workers can form a union either by a petition and election or by their employer voluntarily recognizing the union.

Meow Wolf’s top executives said in a statement that they do not support unionization.

“Meow Wolf recognizes and respects our employees’ right to organize,” Ali Rubinstein, Carl Christensen and Jim Ward wrote. “The policies, practices and culture already in place make our company a great place to work and we value our ability to work directly with employees. As such, we feel Meow Wolf works best without a union.”

The union is currently collecting signatures for a petition, which more than half of the collective’s employees already have signed.
