Musicians for Change Announces
“This Year We Vote” Election Pledge


Did you know that: 


  • Local 802 has not held a single election since 2009 

  • Many current 802 Executive Board members are appointees and have never run in an election

  • Our current 802 Financial Vice President was appointed in 2011 and has never run in an election for that office


This is not what a healthy union democracy looks like. We, the membership, bear some responsibility for this. We haven’t been paying enough attention. We are now.

It is easy to see that our current leadership is happy with the status quo. It is time to take a closer look at the current administration’s role in bringing us to where we stand as a union today in 2018. It is also time for us, the membership, to stand up and make the case for change.


On behalf of all 802 musicians, we are launching “This Year We Vote” election pledge.  Change starts with a well-informed membership that participates in the democratic process. A membership committed to VOTE ultimately makes us a stronger union.

Simply click “THIS YEAR WE VOTE” and pledge to vote in the upcoming 802 Election on December 4.

Be sure to vote in your New York Primaries today!

And on December 4th
VOTE for 802 Musicians for Change 

New Leaders. New Direction. Stronger Union.
