Tuesday, September 29th, 4:30pm – 7pm, outside MTA Headquarters, 44th Street & Madison Avenue

No Contract No Peace! Stand Up for Equal Rights and Justice!


Tuesday, September 29th, 2pm at Judson Memorial Church, 55 Washington Square South (at West 4th Street)

Local 802 AFM and the Jazz Community Kick Off Justice for Jazz Artists! a campaign addressing the plight of NYC’s Jazz musicians, who receive no benefits from the clubs they perform in. New York City jazz musicians deserve a retirement like anyone else.

Sign our petition to help them earn pension payments from NYC jazz clubs — at no cost to the clubs or musicians.

Momentum is growing — we now have well over 2,000 signatures on our petition — but we still need your help to make Tuesday’s rally a overwhelming success! We need you to be there – and we need you to spread the word by personal contact, email, blogs, Facebook and Twitter.

A scholarship fund has been set up in memory of Julius. This fund was created to help bring young unionists to labor cultural events, most notably the Great Labor Arts Exchange and the Western Workers Labor Heritage Festival.
