American Girl Place crew votes union

Actors’ Equity serves as representation

Adult actors and assistant stage managers who work legit performances at Gotham’s American Girl Place have voted a second time to unionize, with Actors’ Equity serving as their bargaining representation.

Thesps at the multilevel toy superstore, which produces original one-act musicals for its shoppers, have been hoping to unionize for more than a year, going so far as to picket for two days in summer 2006 and filing a charge of unfair labor practices with the National Labor Relations Board.

The board upheld that charge and supervised a vote to unionize about a year ago. The move was approved, but American Girl challenged the results.

No date for talks between Equity and American Girl have yet been set.
