LOCAL 802 AFM AGREES TO CONTRACT WITH BROADWAY PRODUCERS

Local 802 of the American Federation of Musicians today announced that they have agreed to a three-year contract with the League of American Theatres and Producers, Disney Theatrical Productions, and Musical Rights, Inc., which covers Broadway musical productions.  The contract was overwhelmingly approved by 82 percent of the voters following a ratification meeting on Wednesday, May 16.  The cordial resolution stands in contrast to the last round of negotiations, which broke down and led to a strike that darkened Broadway.

"With Broadway experiencing steady growth, we are heartened that the producers have acknowledged the invaluable contribution that musicians make to the success of their productions," said Local 802 President Mary Landolfi. "This settlement delivers what our members asked for by dramatically improving our health plan, and will secure benefits for more members than ever.  It is a positive agreement for both sides."

"We are pleased with this outcome, which reflects the parties' positive working relationship," said Charlotte St. Martin, Executive Director of the League of American Theatres and Producers, Inc.  "The settlement is a rational solution and will provide improved health benefits for our employees, while containing costs in an increasingly competitive industry.  It is an agreement that promotes a positive environment for League employers and our musicians."

The agreement includes a productive economic arrangement for both sides, including saving the musicians' floundering health plan.  The status of the health plan was a pressing issue for Broadway musicians, who found benefits inadequate and the barriers for receiving coverage onerous.  The new deal secures significant additional contributions for the health plan from producers.  The additional contributions will also expand the pool of musicians eligible for the plan.  In return, musicians gave up two wage increases during the term of the agreement.
