Vermont Symphony Orchestra Musicians Gain AFM Representation

Musicians of the Vermont Symphony Orchestra will soon enjoy the benefits of a collective bargaining agreement and AFM protection, with the overwhelming majority voting to organize. The NLRB-stipulated election was held January 25 after a successful campaign led through the joint efforts of Local 9-535 (Boston, MA) and Local 171 (Springfield, MA). VSO musicians Nancy Dimock (principal oboe) and Gabe Langfur (bass trombone) provided special assistance throughout the organizing campaign.

Local 9-535, which will represent VSO musicians, looks forward to working with the negotiating committee to achieve their first CBA in the VSO’s 82-year history, establishing AFM protection for each of the orchestra’s members.
