from The Ensemblist staff
"The Ensemblist stands with the chorus of the upcoming Broadway mounting of Rocktopia in their quest for a fair wage and union protections. The singers performing with the Rocktopia chorus are not an existing choir, but a company of individual performers assembled for this production. Not only do the ensemblists of Rocktopia deserve to be paid Equity's Production minimum salary, they also deserve the safe and sanitary protections, health insurance weeks and pension contributions enforced under a union contract. We call for the producers of Rocktopia to put their chorus on an Equity contract."
