Summary

A dozen people conduct two hours of informational picketing outside the National Museum of History and Technology, and distribute leaflets "claiming that management at the Museum had failed to take appropriate steps to resolve allegations against a supervisor and some of his staff of sexual abuse of women employees, physical harassment, favoritism and manipulation of time cards." The demonstration was sponsored by Local 2463 of the American Federation of Government Employees.
