Story, editors locals link

Membership totals over 5,600

Members of Hollywood-based Story Analysts Local 854 have merged into National Editors Guild Local 700.

The union adds about 180 members to Local 700, bringing its total membership to more than 5,600. Move will add one seat to the Local 700 executive board to provide representation for the story analysts, who are employed by production companies to review literary material submitted for consideration.

Both locals, which are affiliated with the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, voted overwhelmingly for the merger.

IATSE officials said the merger is expected to give the editors group, headed by executive director Ron Kutak, increased bargaining strength.
