Instead, it is dealing with strikes from workers who claim the wages and working conditions are unequal to other Spanish museums. The workers created a committee last fall, and since then have been asking for higher wages, flexible working hours, better work-life balance, and a sense of belonging to the institution. They also surveyed ten other museums and found that their wages in comparison were far lower.
“The wages and working conditions at Museo Picasso Málaga were far lower than at the other organisations," a representative of the workers’ committee told The Art Newspaper. "We are seeking a fair labor agreement, with wage, work and social conditions in line with those of workers at other museums.”
