More than 50 people rallied in front of the Walters Art Museum Thursday to demand the management recognize AFSCME as the employees’ union.

“Who has the power? We have the power. What kind of power? Union power!” chanted museum workers.

They were joined by AFSCME members, state Sen. Cory McCray and City Councilman Ryan Dorsey.

Elizabeth Norman, who works in visitor experience for the museum, says she and nearly 100 co-workers have been trying to unionize for months.

They want museum officials to voluntarily recognize the union as their representative.

“The workers at the Walters right now are overworked, understaffed, and we are ready for a change,” Norman said.
