LA Daily News: Performers at ‘The Basement’ Escape Room Plan to Unionize

Performers at The Basement, a horror-themed escape room in Sylmar, plan to unionize with the Actors’ Equity Association as they lobby for higher wages and safer working conditions.

Actors’ Equity is a national labor union representing more than 51,000 professional actors and stage managers in live theatre.

The Basement’s 20 employees have filed for union recognition with the National Labor Relations Board. If the board approves their request, the venue’s owner, Dark House Entertainment, can either accept or reject their plan to unionize.
