Local 802 has been informed that Steven Scott Enterprises intends to cease operations. However, we also know that Steven Scott bands continue to perform engagements already booked and in some cases are continuing to book engagements. It is our position that all of these engagements remain covered by the terms of the Single Engagement Club Date contract. It is also our position that individual company principals and/or bandleaders will be responsible for ongoing benefit payments and adherence to the terms of the union agreement to the extent that they are not paid by Steven Scott.
Steven Scott musicians are hereby directed by the Local 802 Executive Board to inform the union of all dates and venues for which you they are engaged by any of the principals and/or bandleaders associated with Steven Scott Enterprises. Such information can be called into the union’s New York office (212-245-4802) or Long Island office (516-576-9436) or left on the union’s Steven Scott hotline (212-245-4802, ext. 116). All calls will be confidential.
Local 802 will continue to seek dialog with the individual bandleaders and is seeking all legal remedies to recover any outstanding wages, health or pension benefits owed by Steven Scott.
