The MEMBERS Party was organized in 1980 with a mission to run a slate of progressive, knowledgeable, activist candidates for Local 802's elections.
Since winning our first election in December, l982 and beginning our first term in 1983, we have striven to bring integrity, competence, democracy and
common sense to Local 802 in more than thirty years of providing officers elected to its administration.
We have a firm belief in a union that listens to and works for the best interests of its working members with emphasis on negotiating and enforcing contracts
that contain good wages and improved benefits. MEMBERS is an acronym: Make Every Musician Benefit (from) Efficient Responsible Service.
