Scenic Artists ratifies successor deal

Deal affects members working in areas of New York, New Jersey

Members of the below-the-line Scenic Artists have ratified a three-year successor deal with the companies, covering about 3,800 members working in New York City, Nassau County and the Meadowlands area of New Jersey.

Local 829 of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers said in a joint announcement that the new deal includes 2% annual wage increases and increases in health contributions.

The contract will run through Sept. 30, 2015, and cover scenic artists and designers, art directors, costume designers, shoppersons, art department coordinators and their respective assistants.

National business agent Cecilia Friederichs said, “The members of the local are happy with the new agreement as in addition to wage increases, it includes increased health benefit contributions, which were our priority going into the negotiation.”

The AMPTP said, “The agreement with IATSE Local USA 829 is good news for the New York region because it will maintain industry stability at a time when production is booming and employment is near an all-time high. Ratification of this agreement also ensures that members will immediately benefit from the increases in wages and health care contributions that were negotiated with the union.”
