Broadway World: Actors' Equity Association Stands With The Association Of International Comedy Educators At Second City Chicago

Actors' Equity Association, the national labor union representing more than 51,000 professional actors and stage managers in live theatre, including the actors and stage managers of Second City in Chicago and Brooklyn, has announced its support for our colleagues who have been bargaining with the management of Second City for more than two years. Equity has issued the following statement: 

“Actors' Equity Association stands in solidarity with faculty, facilitators and music directors employed by Second City as they demand more equitable working conditions, reasonable compensation and a more collaborative relationship with management. Many Equity members have been trained by the talented educators and performers who make up the Association of International Comedy Educators at Second City, and we know firsthand how their labor forms the backbone of Second City both artistically and financially."
