Broadway Strike Drags On

Posted on November 28, 2007 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

NEW YORK CITY — Talks between Broadway stagehands and producers have continued into a third week.

The League of American Theatres and Producers released a statement saying that matinees are canceled until an agreement is struck.

Both sides seemed optimistic at the start of recent talks, and negotiated for 13 hours during an all-night meeting earlier this week. The union didn't describe it as a "breakdown," but rather as a mutual decision to take a break.

“We felt that as long as sides are talking, there was a good chance that we could come out here and announce a deal. Sadly, there is no deal at the moment,” said Local One spokesman Bruce Cohen. “There will be a deal in the future, hopefully sooner than later — hopefully tomorrow, or the next day, or the next day."

While some issues seem to have been resolved, sources say one of the major sticking points remaining is how much stagehands should be paid for mopping the stage.

The strike has shut down more than two dozen plays and musicals and has slowed businesses in the area, including limousines that usually service that entertainment segment.
