New York University and Vice Dean Ted Magder have been placed on the AFM International Unfair List due to their unwillingness to cover Local 802 musicians under any agreement. NYU employs Local 802 members as independent contractors in its film scoring workshops as well as in theatrical engagements and other work. Local 802 members should not work at New York University, including recording engagements, theatrical work, or any other kind of performance or recording work. (NOTE: This does not include the duties that Local 802 members may have as NYU faculty.) Musicians should notify us if they are called for any work at NYU. Contact Recording Vice President Andy Schwartz directly at (212) 245-4802, ext. 111.
