Employees at The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York are looking to form a union under the United Automobile Workers.

The New York Times reported that a petition asking for a union vote was filed on Monday with the National Labor Relations Board by the Technical, Office, and Professional Union, Local 2110 UAW.

About 180 employees at the Whitney, including a range of positions from curators to porters, are seeking to join the union due to issues of pay equity and job security, according to the Times.

The Whitney workers follow a growing number of museum groups organizing unions, recently including the New Museum and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
