Officer wins third 3-year term as Local 600 topper

Steven Poster has been re-elected to a three-year term as president of the Intl. Cinematographers Guild after running unopposed.

The guild, which operates as Local 600 of the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, is Hollywood’s biggest below-the-line local and reps 6,600 camera crew workers and publicists.

Poster, whose credits include “Donnie Darko” and “Cats and Dogs 2,” also ran unopposed in 2010. He topped Haskell Wexler for the post in 2007.

In contested races, John Toll won re-election as second VP as did incumbent national secretary-treasurer Alan Gitlin and assistant national secretary-treasurer Bruce MacCallum.

Along with Poster, three other officers ran unopposed — VP  Lewis Rothenberg, first VP Paul Varrieur and sergeant-at-arms Michael St. Hilaire.

Poster said Local 600’s board will continue to “strongly support” the leadership of IATSE Intl. President Matthew D. Loeb. The local also said national executive director Bruce Doering continues in that  role.
