May Day message from FIM President and GS

FIM Logo

Dear Colleagues,

On this May Day, when we cel­e­brate all work­ers and their con­tri­bu­tion to soci­ety, we give our thanks to our col­leagues in our health and care ser­vices and to oth­er work­ers in all essen­tial services.

This is an extreme­ly dif­fi­cult time for musi­cians but we know that their unions around the world, are work­ing hard to pro­tect them and to ensure that we have a vibrant and ful­ly func­tion­ing live music indus­try when this pan­dem­ic is over. 

Musicians and their fam­i­lies must not become col­lat­er­al dam­age due to this crisis.

FIM and it’s affil­i­ates are also telling gov­ern­ments that they must sup­port music by giv­ing ade­quate assis­tance to musi­cians and ensur­ing that con­cert halls, venues and the­atres are equipped to safe­ly open when the time is right. Musicians and their fam­i­lies must not become col­lat­er­al dam­age due to this crisis.

We send you and your loved ones our fra­ter­nal best wish­es and our sol­i­dar­i­ty on this May Day. 

Stay well and safe.

John F Smith, President,
Benoît Machuel, General Secretary
