Possible Strike: IATSE Local 700 Special Membership Meeting

According to an IATSE Basic Agreement update released on September 16, 2021:

“We presented the AMPTP with our latest package proposal on the evening of Sunday, September 12. They have not submitted a counter proposal, though lines of communication remain open. The Union remains committed to getting an acceptable contract that recognizes the value our highly skilled and experienced members bring to this industry, which includes addressing longstanding health and safety issues that have plagued our worksites for decades. Meanwhile, member mobilization is ongoing as we prepare for either a contract ratification or a strike authorization vote. You should continue to report to work. We will notify you as more information becomes available.”

Nationwide, a special membership meeting has been called regarding 2021 IA basic agreement negotiations.

Talks with the AMPTP will address humane and equitable working conditions for technicians, artisans and craftspersons in the entertainment industry.

Members are encouraged to join for an important discussion regarding the 2021 IA Basic Agreement Negotiations.

The membership meeting will take place Saturday, Sep 18, 2021
10:00 AM – 12:00 PM (Pacific Time)
