Lyndhurst, N.J., July 15, 2022 - Today, in a 26 to 11 vote the employees at Medieval Times in Lyndhurst, NJ won their union election with the American Guild of Variety Artists (AGVA).

The union of Medieval Times actors, stunt performers, and stable hands, Medieval Times Performers United, released the following statement in response to their victory:

“We are excited to have won our union and grateful for the solidarity shown by our coworkers. The guidance and assistance of AGVA’s staff and members was instrumental in getting us through this process, and we are proud to join AGVA and the broader labor movement. Additionally, we couldn’t be more thankful for the outpouring of support we received from those outside of Medieval Times.

Next, we will use our collective voice to bargain a strong first contract. We look forward to working with management to create a fairer, safer, and more enjoyable Medieval Times. Together, we will build a workplace that allows us to thrive while doing the work we love.”
