IATSE performs ‘Makeover’

Skein's editors vote 12-4 for union representation

The Intl. Alliance of Theatrical & Stage Employees has organized picture editors and assistants at “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”

The group voted 12-4 for union representation Tuesday in a Natl. Labor Relations Board election.

“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” is produced by Lock & Key Prods., a subsidiary of Endemol USA, and airs Sunday nights on ABC.

IATSE will rep the employees through its Motion Picture Editors Guild Local 700. The union recently organized “America’s Next Top Model”; it’s also “Who’s Your Daddy?,” “The Apprentice,” “The Apprentice: Martha Stewart,” “Rock Star: INXS,” “Big Brother” and both “Queer Eye” shows.

The Writers Guild of America West has also been attempting to organize the reality sector. It’s signed up nearly 1,000 reality show employees and assisted in the filing of two lawsuits alleging wage and overtime violation.

MPEG Executive Director Ronald G. Kutak said, “This was a major fight and should show the rest of the industry that reality television, sooner or later, is going to be under an IATSE contract.”

MPEG organizers Jennifer Madar and Tris Carpenter directed the campaign.
