The Seattle Symphony & Opera Players’ Organization (SSOPO) is the labor organization representing the musicians who perform for the Seattle Symphony and Seattle Opera. The bargaining unit is comprised exclusively of the members of the Seattle Symphony, including the music librarian. The self-governing organization (also referred to as “the Players’ Organization”) is a chapter of the International Guild of Symphony, Opera and Ballet Musicians.
The International Guild of Symphony, Opera and Ballet Musicians, also known as “IGSOBM” or “The Guild,” was formed in Seattle as an independent union in 1985. The Guild won its first National Labor Relations Board-supervised elections in 1988, becoming the union representing the musician employees of the Seattle Symphony, Seattle Opera and the Pacific Northwest Ballet.
