Please join us for our 3rd general meeting of Fair Trade Music Seattle. No admission is charged and our meetings are open to working musicians of all genres with a focus on the club musician scene.
Our guest speaker will be Dmitri Iglitzin, Attorney and advocate for working musicians. Dmitri will give a short but invaluable presentation on the legal rights of working musicians followed by a short Q & A session.
If you have needed answers to questions about contracts, cash payments, non-payment etc. this is the time to ask a professional labor attorney.
Dmitri Iglitzin is a partner in the law firm of Schwerin Campbell Barnard Iglitzin & Lavitt, Seattle, Washington. He received his B.A. from Yale University, magna cum laude, and his J.D. from the University of Michigan School of Law, magna cum laude.
He represents numerous unions, including affiliates of the American Federation of Musicians, International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the International Longshore & Warehouse Union, the Laborers International Union, the Service Employees International Union, AFTRA, IATSE, and the American Federation of Teachers. Among his most notable legal accomplishments is the case of Wingert v. Yellow Freight Systems, Inc., which resulted in a decision by the Washington State Supreme Court holding that all workers in Washington State have a legally enforceable right to a paid ten-minute rest period for every three hours of work.
