Met AGMA Negotiating Committee Update

Published May 3, 2021   |  By Musical Artists  |  Post in All Areas

The Met AGMA Negotiating Committee has committed to continue bargaining with the Met for another week, starting today.

Last week we carried our progress forward. Friday was halting, slow, and difficult, but we will press on. This Committee is made up of limitless talent and resolute determination, and we will do everything we can to build a better Met. Our goal was never to merely restore the Met back to how it always was, but to establish a new industry blueprint. We will not waver in our efforts to make the industry safe, equitable, and inclusive.

As soon as we know more, so will you. Thank you for your continued support and belief in us.

As Always

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Ned Hanlon, Negotiating Committee Chair, at, Eastern Counsel Sam Wheeler,, or any of your delegates and committee members.

In solidarity,
