O-2 Labor Consultation Details

Please first review the Labor Consultation page under the Required Evidence section for universal  guidance on labor consultations.

Note that the consultation requirement is waived for certain positions that have no direct input into the creative aspects of a production or performance, and also in cases where there is no appropriate union, as with interpreters, music librarians and even artistic administrators.  It is best first to check with the unions to verify that they do not “cover” a particular position. For further details and how to request a waiver, visit the Labor Consultation page.
