IATSE’s Brewer resigns

Assistant business agent McGuire fills spot

In a surprise development, IATSE Local 44 business agent Art Brewer has resigned from the top post at one of the largest IA locals with a year left on his term. The local’s exec board has appointed assistant business agent Stew McGuire to the vacancy.

Brewer and reps for the local were not available for comment.

Brewer won the post last spring in a narrow victory over incumbent Ron Cunningham on a platform of cost-cutting and responsiveness to member concerns.

The local has about 6,000 members and reps construction coordinators, set decorators, property masters, special effects personnel and propmakers along with employees working on greens and miniatures.
