AFM Local 1000 believes that ALL working musicians have a right to:
- a professional and safe workplace free from physical dangers, harassment, and discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, disability, age, or genetic information;
- professional and respectful communication with presenters, venues, staff, and stage crew;
- compensation that meets at least minimum wage scale guarantees as defined by Fair Trade Music and AFM Local 1000;
- clear policies from venues and presenters on the sale of merchandise;
- transparent and timely reconciliation of all financial matters;
- consent before any live performance is recorded by a presenter (and knowledge of the intended use and destination of any recordings);
- fair and reasonable fees for performing visas to enable and encourage cross-border exchange of culture and experience;
- access to affordable healthcare; and
- a dignified and secure retirement.
