Location managers reach tentative pact

Deal with companies covers about 440 people

Hollywood’s location managers have reached a tentative three-year deal with production companies on a successor contract.

Neither side commented about the deal, which was reached late Wednesday. The location managers, repped by Local 399 of the Intl. Brothehood of Teamsters, will meet Tuesday to ratify the pact.

The deal covers about 440 location scouts, managers and assistants. Location scouts and managers are among the first below-the-line crew members to be hired on many feature and TV projects.

The companies, repped by the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, have negotiated similar deals this year for the master contract for the West Coast locals of the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees and the Basic Crafts contract for Hollywood Teamster drivers and four other basic craft unions.

Both the basic crafts pact and the IATSE deal contain 2% annual wage increases along with $250 million in new employer contributions to the health plan.
