Musicians’ Union:

AKA the AFM, or American Federation of Musicians (of the USA and Canada.) An organization made up of its members that works to promote musicians and their craft. Although Portland’s Local 99 sponsors Fair Trade Music PDX, union membership is not required, either to participate or to perform at participating venues. Fair Trade Music is for all musicians.  No dues are collected, and there’s no hard sell for membership.
