Campaign Updates

Major Campaign Update: On March 11, 2022, HB 1485, which would extend collective bargaining rights to us at the Walters Art Museum was introduced. More details to come!

Background: Since announcing our plans to unionize on April 30, 2021, we have secured supermajority support for a union among our co-workers. Hundreds of community members have signed our support letter and we have even garnered the support of Baltimore City Council members and the Baltimore City Comptroller. However, the Walters Art Museum still refuses to agree to a union election that would include our co-workers across all departments. Despite this impasse, we will continue to seek a fair path toward union recognition for our wall-to-wall union.
