AFM Local 802 Celebrates 100 Years

The 100th birthday party of Local 802 was a smash success, featuring top union bands and visits from Senator Chuck Schumer, CLC President Vinny Alvarez and many other allies. CLC President Alvarez said, "On behalf of the entire New York City labor movement, the New York City Central Labor Council congratulates Local 802 on 100 years of advocating for economic and social justice for our City’s world class musicians and for society as a whole. We are thrilled to join you in celebrating not only your anniversary but the re-opening of New York City, and look forward to continuing to partner with you in protecting and nurturing live music in the creative and cultural capital of the world.” (Photos courtesy Local 802/Walter Karling, click here for more).
