80,000 musicians comprise the American Federation of Musicians of the United States and Canada (AFM). We perform in orchestras, bands, clubs and theaters—both on Broadway and on tour. AFM members also make music for films, television, radio, commercials, and sound recordings. As the largest union of musicians in the world, we have the power to make the music industry work for musicians.
Musicians’ ability to make a living is threatened as never before. Corporate profits continue growing while technological advances transform our work and how we are compensated. But by joining with 80,000 musicians—you are not alone.
We have built strength allowing us to negotiate strong contacts, good wages, decent working conditions, healthcare and a secure retirement. Many of us standing together is more powerful than any of us standing alone.
