Walters Workers Sues Art Museum

Walters Workers United on Monday filed a lawsuit against the Walters Art Museum for refusing to comply with the Maryland Public Information Act (MPIA). “In May, we submitted a public information request for documents related to communications about our unionization, among other things,” tweeted Walters Workers United. “The Walters refused to comply, claiming they are a private institution and are therefore not subject to the MPIA.” WWU, which is organizing with AFSCME, says the Walters “is a public institution and their refusal to respond to our public records request was unlawful. One of our major goals as a union is to build a more accountable and transparent institution for our community. Our public information request was an opportunity for the Walters to live up to those values. And unfortunately, they have failed.”
