The American Federation of Musicians is a democratic membership organization of professional musicians. Our goal is to improve the economic status, social position and general welfare of our members.

What does the AFM do?

The Musicians’ Association of San Diego represents, promotes and protects its members in every field of professional musical activity. The AFM negotiates both international and local contracts and enforces employer observance of wage scales and working conditions, fringe benefits and overtime work. While local unions negotiate minimum wage scales for local engagements and deal with most matters within their own geographical areas, the International Union bargains collectively for all members employed in network radio and TV, videotape, educational TV, music videos, theatrical motion pictures, TV films, commercials, recordings, cable and pay TV, documentary films and traveling musical productions.
