WHY I JOINED THE UNION: "I joined the union because there is strength in numbers. Unionized workers have more power as a cohesive group than by acting individually. I have used the Musicians Directory to find subs for my band when needed and I have also taken advantage of the great prices on equipment insurance!" Read more: the Buddy Boudreaux Connection

"The reason I am in the Union is simple, the Musicians Union has many helpful resources, discounts and protection benefits. I am receiving a small pension and I have a CD on the market which I feel is being protected. In Las Vegas, the union saw to it that you had work, also in Nashville."
