Musicians Unions in Argentina, USA Announce Partnership

AFM Local 47 members traveling in Argentina will now be able to count on union support and services from the Argentine musicians union, Sindicato Argentino de Músicos (SADEM).

Likewise, Argentine musicians affiliated with SADEM who work in the jurisdiction of Local 47 can count on support from AFM Local 47. 

Thanks to the efforts of Local 47 President John Acosta and SADEM Secretary General Ricardo Daniel Vernazza, musicians union members in both countries will be able to count on legal references, rehearsal facilities at member rates, and contractual consultations among other types of support offered by the unions.

Talks are currently in works to establish similar partnerships in more countries including Brazil and Costa Rica.
