Union Handlers In Labor Dispute With Sotheby’s

Members of Teamsters Local 814 allege they are being locked out over a contract dispute with Sotheby’s. They also allege Sotheby’s is asking for pay cuts and wants to change seniority rules even after posting profits of close to $700 million. Sotheby’s has hired temporary employees to take their place.
