IATSE, B’way League strike deal

Upped wages, health plan benefit traveling legiters

The Broadway League and IATSE, the international labor union of stagehands and other backstage workers, have struck a new three-year deal for IATSE members who go on the road with legit shows.

The latest labor agreement for members who travel with a particular show — vs. staying put at one theater, under the jurisdiction of particular local — includes upped wages and an increase in employer contributions to worker health plans, according to IATSE.

Also new to the contract are protections that fall in line with the traditional production contract for local chapters of the union, including grievance and arbitration provisions.

Workers employed under the agreement have long been referred as “pink contracts,” in reference to the color of the pages on which the contract is printed. The latest deal, unanimously ratified by the IATSE general exec board, went into effect Jan. 1 and runs through Dec. 31, 2012.
