Producing Managers' Association

(PMA)
   Producer Sam H. Harris led this producers' organization established in 1918 at the behest of John Golden in the face of mounting tensions between the Actors' Equity Association and the United Managers' Protective Association. The PMA resisted negotiations with Equity, leading to the actors' strike of 1919. Compelled by Equity's resolve, the PMA signed the first American labor-management contract. In 1924, several producers broke with PMA to establish the Managers' Protective Association, which evolved into the League of New York Theatres and Producers* in 1930.
