Voices of B&H Photo Video Warehouse Workers
To the owners and management of B&H Photo Video:
We are writing today in support of the over 200 B&H Photo Video warehouse workers who are seeking to form a union and secure a contract to protect themselves against the dangerous work conditions and discrimination they are currently facing.
As photo and video professionals, artists, music professionals, educators, and students, we believe that the images we create have the agency for social change. This is why it is deeply upsetting to learn that the equipment and materials used to create our work has been brought to us on the backs of other workers who are treated so unfairly on a daily basis
B&H Photo Video warehouse workers describe alarming problems:
We stand with the workers of the #BHexposed campaign, and call on B&H Photo Video to allow the workers to form a union, free from intimidation and retaliation, and quickly negotiate a fair contract. Many of us can no longer in good conscience patronize B&H, and we stand together closely watching the company, ready to act and support the workers.
The Photo/Video Alliance
We are photojournalists, commercial and fine art photographers, videographers, filmmakers, cinematographers, camera operators, musicians, composers, sound engineers, designers, artists, and architects who have been long-term customers of B&H. We are lab technicians and educators who purchase large amounts of equipment and inventories for image processing laboratories within universities, high schools, museums, galleries and many other institutions. We are art workers, students and interns who utilize the purchased tools daily in our studios, classrooms, and workplaces.
We are allies of B&H warehouse workers. We are the Photo/Video Alliance.
