AGMA stands in solidarity with the Actors' Equity Association Broadway actors and stage managers rallying for a fair contract.
AGMA members in the New York City area are encouraged to attend tomorrow's rally (Thursday, November 17) at 4:30 p.m ET in TIMES SQUARE (the pedestrian plaza between Broadway and 7th Avenue, between 45th and 46th Streets). Members not close by, consider sharing support online!
It's about time for a fair deal for Broadway workers. Equity members have been sharing their concerns online, using the hashtag #ItsAboutTimeBroadway.
From Actors' Equity Association’s official press release, “The national union organizing 51,000 actors and stage managers in live entertainment, has been at the bargaining table with The Broadway League since September. At stake is the Union's biggest contract, which governs shows on Broadway as well as Broadway League-produced sit-down shows in other parts of the country. Equity members are looking for changes to rules related to coverage (i.e. understudies, swings and additional stage managers) scheduling and safe workplaces.”
