Fred Films inks deal with IATSE

Co. agrees to recognize Local 839 as rep, bypass board election

Fred Films has signed its first agreement with the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees and its Motion Picture Screen Cartoonists Local 839 for work on animated features.

The deal was reached after the union received representation cards from a majority of the company’s staff. Studio City-based Fred Films agreed to recognize Local 839 as the bargaining representative and bypass the process of a National Labor Relations Board election.

“Fred Films was professionalism personified in negotiating a contract that would bring its staff under the protection of the Screen Cartoonists union,” said MPSC business rep Steve Hulett.

Fred Films, founded by former NickToons exec Fred Seibert, is currently producing “My Neighbor Is A Teenage Robot,” created by Ron Renzetti and set to premiere on Nickelodeon this fall.

The agreement came a month after Local 839 signed a long-term pact with Miramax on the heels of the acquisition of the screenplay “A Horse’s Tale” for development into an animated feature. IATSE also has contracts covering animated feature work with Columbia Pictures, Disney, DreamWorks, 20th Century Fox, Universal and Warner Bros.
