Collective bargaining and contracts
The AFM and CFM officials negotiate wage and working conditions in order to maintain minimum standards for its members involved in recording, TV shows, music videos, commercials, films, video games and traveling theatrical productions. The AFM and CFM also can provide a legally binding contract for any type of engagement, and when properly executed and filed with the appropriate local union office (being where the engagement takes place), they allow the local officer or AFM/CFM to help collect payments in the case of a default.
