Broadway pacts with Local 802

LATP offers legit musicians' union new contract

The legit musicians’ union have agreed to a new three-year contract with Broadway producers.

Quietly arranged pact marks a shift from the last round of contract negotiations between the musicians’ union, Local 802, and the producers’ union, the League of American Theaters and Producers. In 2003, stalled talks between the two orgs prompted a strike that shut down Broadway for four days.

New agreement, which covers Rialto productions, ups producers’ contributions to the musicians’ health plan while expanding eligibility for coverage as well. In exchange, the musicians gave up two wage increases over the duration of the contract. Dwindling health coverage was a major concern for Local 802 going in to negotiations.

Both the musicians’ union and the League have had changes in leadership in the last year, with Mary Landolfi taking the helm at Local 802 in December and Charlotte St. Martin heading up the League since last July.

Deal, which was approved by 82% of 802 members earlier this month, was struck between Local 802, the League, Disney Theatrical Prods. (which isn’t a member of the League) and Musical Rights, Inc.
