Loss of benefits and work is pushing music workers to the brink. With federal PUA set to expire at the end of December, and a return to work still many months away, the Music Workers Alliance is calling for FPUC restoration, PUA extension, a seat at the table to plan safe work opportunities as soon as possible, and an arts worker agenda at the state and city level. Working musicians, DJs, and engineers are facing unsustainable precarity as the expiration of benefits looms and shutdowns continue through next summer.

The Music Workers Alliance will be hosting a Town Hall with New York State and City elected officials at to address the dire need of musicians in New York and advocate for a seat at the table in 2021 reopening planning. RSVP on the right to get the zoom link!
