Union Files Complaint Against Washington Ballet

Washington Ballet’s new dancers’ union has filed a complaint against the company. “AGMA last week told the National Labor Relations Board in a formal “charge against employer” that the ballet company had informed guild members Nikkia Parish and Brian Corman that they would be terminated. AGMA claims the termination is in retaliation for the dancers’ “support and activities” on AGMA’s behalf and for their testimony in favor of the union at a January NLRB hearing to determine an appropriate bargaining unit for the company’s dancers.”
