IATSE endorses Gore for president

Office record and boom economy swing vote

HOLLYWOOD — The Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees has endorsed Vice President Al Gore’s bid for the presidency.

The union’s general executive board, meeting in Boston, said the decision was based on Gore’s record while in office.” His positions on education, Social Security and Medicare as well as his stance on the environment and support of the working family made the decision easy for everyone,” said Thomas Short, president of the union. “The economy is the best it has ever been for the past 50 years.”

Employees’ rep

IATSE, which has more than 100,000 members, also won the right to represent employees in collective bargaining with Pittsburgh public television station WQED.

The National Labor Relations Board election gave unanimous support to the union, with IATSE Local 489 selected as collective bargaining agents.

IATSE said the station, credited with production of “Mister Rogers” and early National Geographic specials, began cutting back on production several years ago and reduced employee hours along with health and pension benefits.
