IATSE makes Philly pact

Global Spectrum deal covers venues in other cities

The Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees has signed a three-year contract with Philadelphia-based Global Spectrum, covering work at more than half a dozen facilities.

IATSE said the deal stemmed from a longstanding relationship that began with Global Spectrum’s facilities in Philadelphia — the Wachovia Center and Wachovia Spectrum — and was carried through to their contracts at the Liacouras Center at Temple U. and the Sovereign Bank Arena in Trenton, N.J.

The pact also covers three Global Spectrum’s other facilities — the Everett Events Center in Everett, Wash.; the Dodge Arena in Hidalgo, Texas; and the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland, Colo. Those venues opened this past fall.

“This is one of the most significant contracts of the last several years for the International,” IATSE prexy Thomas Short said. “This contract provides consistent and equal benefit contributions for our members regardless of their geographic location.”

Global Spectrum is part of Comcast-Spectacor, which owns the Wachovia Center and Wachovia Spectrum, the National Hockey League’s Philadelphia Flyers, the National Basketball Assn.’s Philadelphia 76ers, the American Hockey League’s Philadelphia Phantoms, Comcast SportsNet, three minor league baseball teams, Ovations Food Services and Patron Solutions.
