Collective Action Works

There are serious problems facing today's musicians, such as job security, economic exploitation, and a shortage of job opportunities. These are all prominent issues that must be addressed. Collectively, musicians have a stronger voice in the workplace. The only way that musicians will achieve equality and gain respect from others in the entertainment industry is through communication, cooperation and collective action.

Representing Professional Musicians

South Florida Musicians Association was established in 1913 and represents over 400 local musician members. We act together to protect our mutual interests, to promote and conserve our craft, to agree on fair prices and conditions, and to enforce fair dealings in our profession. In short, we combine our strength to do whatever we can do better collectively than we can do individually.

International Representation

Local 655 is affiliated with the American Federation of Musicians (AFM), the largest entertainment labor organization in the world, with 100,000 members throughout the United Stated and Canada.
