Protesters marched outside of the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts Monday night as actor James Earl Jones was set to be honored inside.

Protesters with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 33 and 47 held up signs and chanted.

Organizers say they want the city to give them a new contract.

The unions and Mayor Michael Nutter have been at odds for months over a new deal.

The protesters marched as Mayor Nutter was inside the Kimmel Center attending the ceremony.
