Actors’ Equity Association says it will stage a rally in Manhattan’s theater district Thursday to support contract changes in its agreement with The Broadway League, the trade organization for producers and theater owners.
Equity, the national union representing actors and stage managers, has been at the bargaining table with the League since September. Equity says the rally is in support of contract changes to rules related to coverage involving understudies, swings and additional stage managers.

It's about time for appropriate levels of coverage. It's about time for a more humane schedule. It's about time for safer workplaces. It's about time for a fair deal for Broadway workers. Join us this Thursday, November 17 at 4:30 PM ET in Times Square. #ItsAboutTimeBroadway pic.twitter.com/k9nWrRXro3
