The International Alliance for Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) has ratified a new 3-year basic and Area Standards Agreement that has passed two narrowly with a majority vote for yes vote.
The whole range of candidates, with 117 delegates voting for the ground and 114 delegates voting on the base standards agreement. Their size and weight depended on them, the last person who supported the issue then made the final decision.
People often voted not to endorse the basic agreement, while the popular vote was narrowly split with 570 members, who vote no yes and 45.4 percent of the vote no. The Area Standards Agreement saw 52 percent vote yes and 48 percent vote no in the vote.
One and only 73,209 eligible union members took part in the contest. Their vote was overwhelmingly rejected by Local 600 (International Cinematographers Guild) with a 52 percent "yes" vote and narrowly passed by Local 700 (Motion Picture Editors Guild) with a 53 percent "yes" vote, which was the largest of the three finalists, most evenly matched the majority of the 63,209 eligible members. The contest was rejected by the union as a big turnout.
There is no shortage of resources to take action to raise awareness about collective bargaining and make for much more integration in the union long-term.
The contract ratified after a long negotiation period began in May and narrowly avoided a threatened strike. In addition to the membership was a lot more divided in the final vote, as many urged a no vote and in telegraphing their interest in sending IATSE leadership back to the bargaining table. Almost 60,000 film and TV workers are affected, despite 58 percent of the agreements.
The agreement's a vote by the Basic Agreement bargaining committee last month commended a vote of the backband. Locals were holding a board meeting to explain the contract, the three percent annual increases of scale wages regressive, daily 10 day turnarounds for all / and 54- and 32-hour weekends rest periods. One member organized their own grassroots meeting to discuss the proposed deal and give themselves feedback.
The memo, released by the members on Nov. 4, disclosed that the union and producers put together a plan to review the long-term viability of the unions health and pension plans and that they also intend to continue discussions over members missing meal periods. The MOA sketched out a few different points of the agreements diversity, equity and inclusion proposals, including encouraging members to self-identify in union and employer paperwork and establishing a equity-focused training program or programs.
In the eyes of many of the director of photography and local 600 members, the deaths of her gungun she was killed after the death of her in the building of a town of Rust, was even more important because of the recent death of the director of a shooting, Halyna Hutchins that constituted a complex agreement that would not make it more important than the initial assessment by the management and the committee of the general group resigned.
The Basic Agreement typically includes work undertaken by thirteen West Coasters of the union, three of whom are national (including 60, 700, 800). The ASA also tends to apply to activities done outside New York and Los Angeles areas.
