Broadway Across America Agreement Ratified

Negotiations between South Florida Musicians Association and Broadway Across America for a successor agreement have recently concluded, and the agreement has just been ratified by musicians.

In these difficult economic times, where many negotiations are resulting in wage freezes or concessions on the part of musicians, we have been able to secure significant increases in wages, including increasing rehearsal pay to parity with performance pay.

More significantly, we have achieved language to address some of the major concerns expressed by the Broadway Across America musicians as we prepared for negotiations. Broadway Across America has recognized musicians' concern for job security, and has agreed to new language recognizing that local positions should be filled by those local musicians regularly working in south Florida.

The Local would like to thank negotiating committee members Neal Bonsanti, Dan Satterwhite, and Brian Stanley and lead negotiator Nathan Kahn for their hard work.
