Editing co. votes not to break away
The Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local 700 has won a 31-7 vote to continue as the bargaining rep for 45 workers at trailer house Aspect Ratio.
Employees covered by the contract include trailer editors, picture editors, assistant editors, sound editors, sound mixers, transfer, post supervisors and music librarians.
IATSE said Aspect Ratio attempted to break away from the union at the end of their agreement, causing the union to “reorganize” the workers through a card-signing campaign.
Tris Carpenter of Local 700 spearheaded the organizing effort.
