On Tuesday, Nov. 12, Disney will launch Disney+. The launch of this streaming service marks a shift toward a new business model for film and television, along with an unnecessary and unwarranted effort by major studios to decimate musicians’ livelihoods in the process.
Musicians in Los Angeles are fighting back.
Join us as for a large rally outside the Walt Disney Picture company lot to demand a fair contract for streaming that includes residuals, set wages, and screen credits for musicians. We will be greeting a large double-decker bus of musicians who will be holding mini-rallies throughout the morning at other major studios, culminating in our large demonstration outside Disney.
Join us! RSVP @ afm47.org/newmedia
Open to all members in good standing. Food & refreshments will be served.
On the Agenda (subject to change):
* Presentation of 50-Year Pins
* Presentation by the LA County Federation of Labor
* Officer Reports
* Old and New Business
Please join us for our next General Membership Meeting on Monday, Jan. 27 for a special presentation by the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, where we will hear about the special report on Amazon released by Economic RoundTable.
