The conditions set out in this agreement are the minimum conditions for musicians working in theatres in a part of the United Kingdom run by members of the UK Theatre or whose production director responsible for making the orchestra available is a member of the UK Theatre. This agreement excludes all musicians working under agreements between MU and opera and dance companies as well as in London`s West End, which is in accordance with the terms of the SOLT/MU agreement. Mu regularly organizes campaigns on relevant musical and industrial themes. Recent campaigns have included protests outside theatres in response to the use of phonograms in shows where live music has been promoted, and the anti-pay-to-play campaign, a theme that continues to touch the live music scene, especially at the grassroots.
