A Message from Adam Krauthamer

Local 802 President-elect

December 5, 2018

 

Dear Fellow Musicians: 

We have just received the certified results of yesterday’s election and I am proud to announce that you have elected me to be your next President by an overwhelming margin. Moreover, the entire MFC slate has been elected, including Karen Fisher to the Office of Financial Vice-President, in what is a clear mandate for change. The full results of yesterday’s election can be accessed here.

 

We are grateful for, and humbled by, your enthusiastic support. With this mandate, we will move forward decisively to implement our vision of this union—building a more secure future for all of our members. Everyone on the MFC team is prepared to get to work to create a better future, serve our fellow musicians and create positive change at Local 802.

Fellow 802 Musicians,
We see what you see
Declining membership, less and less union work under contract, a younger generation of musicians who see no value in joining our union, a pension plan in crisis, and a leadership that has not stepped up to the challenges we face. Together, these troubling trends represent an existential threat to our union. If this does not change, eventually there won’t be any union at all. That is a future we refuse to accept.
On Tuesday December 4th, Vote - 802 Musicians for Change
 
  • To elect a new team to rebuild the strength of this union 
  • To bring new thinking to the challenging environment we find ourselves in 
  • To make our union leadership more transparent and more accountable to its membership 
  • To make our union serve its membership better and be more responsive to its needs 
  • To rebuild the membership base and strengthen its finances 
  • To challenge the trustees of the pension plan to right the ship 
 
New Leaders.  New Direction.  Stronger Union.
