Fleece (she/her) : Eastern Principal Candidate
We need more representation in AEA governance for members who primarily work contracts paying less than the Production Contract, and who rely on union-negotiated auditions and interviews to access employment. I’m an early-career actor who joined via the EMC program, and I want to be your voice in Council.
Katie Young (she/her) : Eastern Stage Manager Candidate
I believe that our north star as a collective of arts works should always be to uplift the value of the work we do and stand strong together in asking for what we need and deserve to do this work in a healthy, safe, and sustainable way.
Jane F. McAlevey
“When they work well, unions are the voices of all of the workers in negotiations with management and can leverage worker solidarity to not only prevent management from treating workers poorly, but to force management to create a safer, equitable, and more joyous workplace.”
