IATSE deals with ‘Poker’ skeins

Editors will receive health insurance, retirement benefits

The Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees has negotiated deals covering picture editors and assistants on “America’s Next Top Model” and the entire post-production staff for “World Poker Tour” and the upcoming “Professional Poker Tour.”

The editors, represented through IATSE’s Local 700 Motion Picture Editors Guild, will receive health insurance and retirement benefits through the Motion Picture Industry Plans.

 “These two contracts are part of our ongoing effort to organize everything editorial in Hollywood,” said Ronald G. Kutak, exec director of Local 700.  “This isn’t some gimmick, some publicity stunt.  We achieved something here that will produce real results for editors and their families.”

The contracts cover about 40 employees. IATSE launched both campaigns earlier in the year and has also signed reality TV producers Mark Burnett and Endemol to deals.

The WGA West has also been attempting to organize the reality TV sector this year and has helped file lawsuits against producers alleging wage and overtime violations for the writers on those shows.
