Afm Video Game Agreement
In August, the Alabama Symphony Orchestra ratified a new three-year contract, which began on September 1, 2017 and runs until August 31, 2020. The orchestra`s musicians are members of Local 256-733 (Birmingham, AL). Although he declined to comment on this story, Acosta wrote in a recent issue of Local 47 Overture that “the lack of market share for AFM in video games has reached a point of crisis” and admitted that “the limited work we have done before has almost disappeared in non-union productions. We informed the signatories of the 2014-2017 agreement of the one-year extension and distributed letters of acceptance so that they could recall the terms of the extension. “The conditions are far from what the industry wants,” says Barry, noting that gaming companies insist on owning the entire intellectual property, including music, that goes into their games. The previous AFM gaming contract, which dates back to 2007, was “very favourable to the manufacturers,” he said, and a handful of “papouté” games under that contract will continue to be marked in L.A.

In August, the National Labor Relations Board will decide whether the Post Office violated its collective agreement (CBA) with the American Postal Workers Union (APWU) by outsourcing postal services to Staples subsidiaries. As a general rule, Staples employees earn about one-third of what the average postal worker earns. APWU alleges that the Post Office violated the CBA by illegally contracting the work without negotiating with the union. Local 802 has reached an agreement with several theatres on Long Island.
Among these theatres: the AFM and Local 47 announced that an agreement had been reached with the producers of the original Amazon Transparent series to cover the musicians working on the show under a union contract. Picrow`s producers quickly agreed to take over the AFM`s television and new media contract, after musicians from the Los Angeles Musicians` Union spoke publicly late last month to ask where the musicians pride was, pointing to the unequal treatment of musicians who, unlike all actors, , writers, directors, crews and other workers, were not under an employment contract. The agreement was ratified by an overwhelming majority of all musicians entitled to vote, whose votes were rendered and counted by secret ballot. The ratification process was managed by the American Arbitration Association and was observed by administrative assistants in the electronic services division cecelia Gray and myself. The dust between Wintory and the union comes at a time when musicians are increasingly furious that the AFM has failed to keep the vidgame recording in L.A. by focusing on a contract rejected by the major game publishers. AFM Local 47 VP John Acosta declined to comment on the case as an “internal union matter.” Wintory is just one of many composers who welcome non-unionists, but according to several game composers contacted by Variety, he is believed to be the first to be accused of violating AFM rules. Game composers often go to Seattle (a non-AFM city), London or Nashville (whose AFM musicians, as in Texas, are not allowed to unionize because Tennessee is a state of law-to-work).
