The strike is over! (but maybe you knew that)

Just in case you haven’t heard, the strike at the Canadian War Museum and Canadian Museum of Civilization are over!

On December 16th, after 86 days of striking, staff from both museums went back to work.

I won’t pretend to know the ins and outs of the strike, why it started and how it finished, all I can say is:

Welcome back! Canada’s cultural heritage needs you! 🙂

Alas, there is still some confusion… Are these museums open this week or not? Their homepages both say they both are open, but hours schedules say they’re closed from January 4th-8th for their annual maintenance. After too much time spent going through their tedious automated phone systems, I’ve learned that they are, in fact, closed until the 8th inclusively. (They will be open January 9th from 9:30-5pm if you’re interested.)

Big congratulations to all members involved in this issue for getting it resolved, and I hope everyone will take some time to enjoy these extraordinary museums in the near future.
