I’m a proud member of Actors’ Equity Association since 2008. Being in a union provides me protections in the workplace… theatre can be a dangerous job, especially during a global pandemic! Equity hired top epidemiologists to determine the best safety protocols we would need in order to work as safely as possible. The provisions in our collective bargaining agreements keep me safe and those contracts protect me and my union siblings. I know exactly what to expect from my employers (producers) because of the protections that have been negotiated into the contracts. I also know that Equity will file a grievance on my behalf when needed, because they have! Being in the union means 51,000 people have my back, and I have theirs. In solidarity!
