Broadway Labor Strike Update

NEW YORK (AP) _ Striking stagehands and theater producers are planning to return to the bargaining table tomorrow.

The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees says it's glad the producers had accepted their "invitation to negotiate.''

More than two dozen plays and musicals have been closed since November 10th, when the stagehands walked off the job.

Negotiations broke down nearly a week ago and kept most of Broadway dark during the lucrative Thanksgiving week.

The dispute is focused on how many stagehands are required to open a Broadway show and keep it running.

The producers want a flexible number; the union wants a set number and ample compensation for any concessions made.
