AFL-CIO joins fight to pass the American Music Fairness Act: #irespectmusic

As we shared recently the world’s largest federation of labor unions, the AFL-CIO is actively supporting the American Music Fairness Act to make sure musicians get paid when their songs are played on the radio.

Really great news, the largest union organization in the US has joined the fight for fairness for the world’s recording artists and session performers! 

MusicFirst leader Joe Crowley said: 

We applaud the AFL-CIO for standing by artists and music creators and lending the strength of its 12.5 million members to fight for passage of the American Music Fairness Act.

This legislation will benefit artists across the country – including the tens of thousands who are members of SAG-AFTRA, the American Federation of Musicians and other AFL-CIO unions – by correcting a decades-long injustice fueled by corporate greed that has left artists uncompensated for their use of their songs on AM/FM radio.
