Notice of Strike Sanctions

On June 9, 2015, the AFM Local 47 Executive Board requested strike sanction approval from the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor against Cinema Scoring, Collective Media Guild, and Peter Rotter Music Services.

This request came as the result of these employers’ actual and/or potential non-union engagements that would undermine area standards and harm the livelihoods of musicians who depend on fair employment for their survival.
