NEW PASADENA POPS PLAYER COMMITTEE/FILMMUSIC EVENT A SUCCESS/COMMENTS

Friday, July 20th, 2007

Greetings Colleagues!,

I. PASADENA POPS ELECTS NEW PLAYER COMMITTEE
II. RECENT FILM MUSIC WEEKLY EVENT CONSIDERED A SUCCESS
III. MEMBER COMMENTS

Colleagues!,

Don’t forget the General Membership Meeting on July 23rd! We need
your participation to make sure our Local represents all of us! The meeting
starts at 7pm. Don’t be late!

At the AFM Convention, representatives of the committee were frankly
surprised and encouraged by how far and wide our e-mails were being distributed throughout the federation. From big and small locals, we received encouragement to continue pressing for a union that works for all its members
and for accountability of its officers. We found that the issues we deal with
in Los Angeles are shared by many locals around the federation.

If you are receiving this mailing second- or third-hand, and wish to be added
to the mailing list, reply to: Commresp47@responsible47.com.

The COMMITTEE

I. PASADENA POPS ELECTS NEW PLAYER COMMITTEE

Members of the Pasadena Pops showed up at Local 47 on Monday, July 2nd,
to vote for the Orchestral Committee that will take part in the negotiations
between the Pasadena Symphony, Pasadena Pops and Local 47. At stake are
the jobs of 65 musicians in the Pasadena Pops. Initially described as a merger
(much like the LA Phil and the Hollywood Bowl), it wound up being the
dissolution of the Pasadena Pops, with the entire summer season going to
members of the Pasadena Symphony.

Greetings Local 47 Colleagues!,

There are many important things going on right now, things you need to
know about and become active for. There may be more mailings than usual
over the next few weeks and we apologize for the extra mailbox space taken
ahead of time. We hope you’ll take the time to read, and if moved
to do so, call or write our Local, its officers and the Overture to let your
feelings be known. If they refuse to print your letters, or even if they do
print them, please send them to us as well, more exposure is always better.

THE COMMITTEE

I. REFERAL SERVICE POTENTIALLY UNDER ATTACK YET AGAIN!

Rumor has it the Executive Board is at it again!
