IATSE locals OK pact with producers

Agreement affects all members; few details given

All 21 West Coast studio locals of the Intl. of Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) have overwhelmingly ratified a proposed labor agreement with the Hollywood producers’ org, the Intl. Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.

The IATSE pact forms the legal basis for any employment arrangement between the two entities. It will run for three years and affects all 30,000 members of the IATSE.

An agreement between the two had been tentatively reached on Sept. 23. But IATSE officials waited until Oct. 13 to announce their pact so that members would have a chance to read them in referendum documents.

But the Dec. 10 announcement, like that on Oct. 13, was largely bereft of details: A statement from IATSE international prexy Tom Short said only that the new agreement embodies a host of improvements including a wage increase, increased contributions to the IAP (Individual Account Plan, similar to an annuity plan) and a 23% increase in the defined pension benefit.

The results of the vote were 9,547 for, 772 against. The agreement will take effect on Aug. 1.
