Musicians' Union

In response to the increasingly vocal conversation that has been occurring about sexual harassment and abuse in the workplace, the Musicians’ Union is staging two events to consider how it might be a catalyst for change in this area within the music industry.

The drop-in sessions will take place in Manchester and London with the aim of allowing “musicians to talk about their experiences with others working in the industry”, and to “consider ways the MU could offer further support and be a catalyst for change”.

Organisers add: “We will be discussing the kind of action that is required to protect musicians at work – be that as employed members of staff or freelancers – and looking at the measures that can be taken to improve workplaces across the industry. There will also be information available to take away on your rights, grievance procedures, discrimination claims and other practical ways to make complaints”.

The events take place in Manchester tomorrow and next week in London. Details of how MU members can register to attend are online here.
