Jarred Antonacci
Candidate for Secretary-Treasurer

 

I became a proud member of Local 77 shortly after relocating to Philadelphia in 2005. At the time, my teacher served as an officer of Local 77 and was on the executive board of Local 661-708. Since it was instilled in me early on that union work is the best work, it seemed foolish not to belong to a group of individuals who choose to stand in solidarity for fair wages and fair workplace practices­. As I developed professionally and began to work in town, I quickly realized that there wasn’t enough union work to go around. I believe our local is long overdue for positive transition and revitalization.

The role of an effective Secretary-Treasurer relies heavily on paying attention to detail, executing administrative duties, and effectively communicating with union members and administration around a host of different topics. These are exactly the skills I have cultivated and demonstrated over the last 15 years as I forged a successful career in performance and higher education. I would welcome the privilege of applying these skills as Secretary-Treasurer on behalf of all professional musicians. Together, I am confident we can make a positive impact on the Philadelphia performing arts community.
