New York Entertainment Workers Win Renewal of the Cobra Subsidy Program

Thanks to action taken by members of the Coalition of Broadway Unions and Guilds, including Local 802 musicians, a renewal of the COBRA subsidy program made it into the NYS budget! This important program, which pays 50% of monthly COBRA premiums for entertainment union members for 12 months, has kept over 1,150 entertainment workers on their healthcare over the past decade. Thanks to all the members who called and emailed their local legislators!
