SUMMER OF SOLIDARITY: This summer, Local 802 members stood up for actors and writers on strike for a fair contract in dozens of major demonstrations and added the power of music to the picket line. The AFL-CIO called it the “hot union summer” of 2023. Below are scenes from the National Day of Solidarity on August 22, 2023 in NYC, including a video by Local 802 President Sara Cutler. Please continue to join the picket lines (schedule is linked here). Photos by John Pietaro and Dan Point.
