Motions passed include calls for Welsh language provision in Musicians' Union communications, and future planning for a pandemic to make sure that musicians are not forgotten in Government support schemes.
Clear policy priorities for the next two years
Debates were also held on providing domestic abuse support for survivors and how the union can best support carers and those with childcare needs. Motions on both topics passed with unanimous support.
An emergency motion in support of the RMT union's Save Ticket Offices campaign was also unanimously backed. MU members are encouraged to take part in a consultation on the closure of up to a thousand ticket offices.
In her closing speech, MU General Secretary Naomi Pohl thanked delegates for a constructive and inspiring two days and a clear set of policy priorities for the next two years.
Working together for a better future
Former MU General Secretary John Smith gave an update on the International Federation of Musicians (FIM), solidarity across borders and cooperation between musicians. CEO of PPL Peter Leathem also addressed the room with an update on PPL's work over the last two years and the organisation's future plans.
Delivering the traditional member address, Lady Nade thanked delegates for their work and underlined the importance of getting involved: "Togetherness, collaboration, fighting fear and everyone being given the chance to have a voice... Everyone here is contributing something special."

Celebrating 130 years of the Musicians' Union
This Conference was also a celebration of an important milestone for the union.
In April 1893, clarinettist Joseph Bevir Williams sent an open letter to musicians in Manchester inviting them to a meeting to discuss the formation of a union.
A hundred and thirty years later, the union is proud to represent 33,000 musicians across the UK.
