Here is a stealing the gig story (kind of) I don't know who the guy was but, he was trying to put together a symphony concert. He was negotiating with one of the local symphonies and couldn't come to terms. Somehow the guy got hold of a roster for the symphony and tried to hire the musicians himself. The union found out and called the musicians and told them not to take the gig. Two players took the gig anyway and were suspended from the union.
