IATSE unionizes ‘Campus’

Union says Oxygen's 'Ladies' to bow this summer

HOLLYWOOD — The Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees has unionized the crew of Oxygen Networks’ upcoming “Campus Ladies” from Campus Ladies Prods.

The union said the Los Angeles-based television series, with a budget of under $400,000, has an order of 10 episodes and is set to debut this summer.

IATSE said it called for a crew walkout May 24 to pressure producers to negotiate, leading to a pact granting the 40 crewmembers an increase in wages, improved working conditions, overtime provisions, rest periods, meal penalties, pension and healthcare benefits.

IATSE president Thomas Short said the effort is part of the union’s continued efforts to organize low budget cable series. “This crew will now receive hours toward their pensions and healthcare in addition to receiving pay increases while the producers can remain within their budget restrictions,” Short said in a statement.

“Campus Ladies” is a comedy about two women who, after a divorce and a widowing, enroll in the local university and live in the dorm. Cheryl Hines exec produces with Paul Young of Principato-Young; Peter Principato and E. Brian Dobbins also produce.
