The MU has collective agreements for musicians covering National theatres and 'West End' theatres in London.

We also have House Agreements with companies. Each of these organisations have unique and distinct ways of working. The MU has negotiated bespoke agreements for these companies for the employment of musicians that recognise the needs of each company.
