Possible Strike Threatens To Close Broadway

A union representing about 1,500 stage workers is voting Thursday on whether to authorize a strike.

If approved, a strike could begin on Friday and would impact 28 of the 30 Broadway shows and 17 shows on a national tour. The union represents stage hands, wardrobe personnel, and hair and makeup artists. They've been without a contract since early July and negotiations have reportedly stalled.

Pay and health care are said to be two of the big issues in negotiations.

A possible strike by Broadway workers would come after Hollywood writers and actors walked off the job earlier this summer.
