Union has been bargaining since September with The Broadway League on the Contract that Governs Broadway Shows and First-Class Sit-Down Productions Around the Country
NEW YORK – Broadway's Actors and Stage Managers will take to the streets on Thursday, November 17 to rally for a fair contract from their employers. Actors' Equity Association, 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.
Last week Equity members began sharing their concerns online with the hashtag #ItsAboutTimeBroadway. Highlights from those posts can be viewed on Equity's Instagram page.
WHO/WHAT: Broadway actors and stage managers rallying for a fair contract. Expected speakers include Gavin Creel (Into the Woods), NYS AFL-CIO President Mario Cilento, Actors' Equity Association 3rd Vice President Erin Maureen Koster and more!
WHEN/WHERE: TODAY! In the heart of the theatre district, on the pedestrian plaza between Broadway and 7th Avenue, between 45th and 46th Streets in New York City. Please arrive by 4:30 p.m.
