After the chemical exposure, urgency to form a union builds. Workers and community allies protest museum’s refusal to meet and determine a fair and inclusive path to unionization.

Moved by workers’ testimonies, Baltimore City Council and Baltimore Comptroller send letters to museum leadership urging them to meet with workers and come to an election agreement.

Workers suggest ways to improve safety protocols in a letter sent to Walters leadership. Leadership ignores concerns and never responds to the letter.

Workers also extend an invitation to the museum’s Board of Trustees to meet and discuss the current state of WWU’s unionization efforts.

Meanwhile, Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott issues another letter to The Walters' Board of Trustees affirming support for WWU and requesting the museum consider the variety of options available for union recognition. 

Workers leaflet outside of the museum and educate donors about the ongoing labor dispute with management.
