Tirado voted prez of WB office union

Jose Tirado has been elected president of the Warners Bros. Office Employees, an independent union representing approximately 700 people at the studio and its affiliates.

Tirado’s election comes after months of infighting within the union, with members split over recent contract negotiations.

Tirado said his main goal is to fight for more equitable distribution of the studio’s wealth.

“If they can afford to spend millions of dollars to renovate buildings and hundreds of thousands of dollars to buy Range Rovers for their stars while the rest of us are car-pooling, then there’s a problem,” he said.

Also, he said there is the possibility that the WBOE will eventually seek affiliation with the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees.

Others elected include Shirley Cohen, vice president; Dennis Osborne, treasurer; Ran Barker and Joann Bell, directors at large; and Angie Maldonado, second steward.
