Why be a member of Local 72-147?
Our primary purpose, as with any labor union, is to represent our members in their workplace. We do this by helping them obtain contracts, e.g. collective bargaining agreements, administering those contracts, and by setting area wage scale standards. In addition all members of Local 72-147 receive the AFM’s monthly publication, The International Musician and our quarterly publication, The Dallas-Fort Worth Musician to keep them on top of events in the area.
AFM members can benefit from our Musicians Federal Credit Union and all members in good standing are encouraged to join the credit union and take advantage of above-market dividends on savings and low-rate loans on cars, instruments, equipment, etc., with approved credit.
