‘Ghost’ crew stages strike

Members of the crew of “Ghost Central Station” picketed in front of Warner Bros. Studios Tuesday after they walked out of the nonunion production, a low-budget, family-oriented feature.

Union officials who are attempting to organize the production said that it is being done through Saban Entertainment. They said that its budget was about $7 million.

According to officials of the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, about 50 crew members struck the pro-duction, which was leasing space from the studio, on Monday, and continued to picket in front of the Cordoba Gate at WB on Tuesday.

Union officials said that Saban has since brought in nonunion crew members to continue the production.

“We don’t comment on labor issues,” a spokesman for Saban Entertainment said.
