The Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees has raised more than $13,750 through its political action committee.
IATSE received the contributions at a fundraiser Monday at the Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. The event was sponsored by 27 Los Angeles-based locals and held on the first day of the general exec board meeting.
IATSE, which reps more than100,000 below-the-line employees, recently endorsed John Kerry for president.
IATSE president Tom Short said, “We in organized labor are facing life and death decisions in the November election and we must work tirelessly to replace the current Washington administration. Raising funds through PAC is only one way that we can do that.”
