During the musicians’ strike in the 80’s, Nancy was appointed to the Musicians’ Negotiations Committee.

Also, recently our (the musician’s) involvement in a long running local show was terminated a few days before the show was to start rehearsals to re-open. Fortunately, with the union’s legal support and our patience we were back at work shortly thereafter with the same show and better contracts.
