Baltimore, MD – Walters Workers United is seeking to organize employees of the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore. The group has affiliated with AFSCME Council 67.
Despite the majority of museum workers supporting a union, Walters’ leadership refused to agree to a union election.
Over the past 16 months, museum leadership and the board have steadfastly refused to speak with us on any matter relating to labor relations,” said Greg Bailey, who works in conservation, technical research, and collections at the Walters.
AFSCME represents nearly 10,000 museum workers nationwide. Their Cultural Workers United campaign represents over 35,000 workers at museums, libraries, and zoos who are increasingly joining together to negotiate for better pay, working conditions, and demand equity, and fight for transparency in their workplaces.
