The General Counsel of the National Labor Relations Board has dismissed an appeal from the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees over the hiring of non-union personnel on the CBS sitcom “Love & War,” the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday.
The NLRB ruled in favor of Love & War Prods. Inc., according to Shukovsky English Entertainment executive VP John Drinkwater.
The decision holds that the production company’s actions were justified and lawful in its response to IATSE’s threatened strike during the filming of the first episode of “Love & War” in April 1992.
The NLRB also concluded that the company didn’t discriminate against IATSE members when it hired the regular-season production crew last August, noting that several IATSE members hired for the pilot were rehired for the regular production season.
