DGA taps labor lawyer as assistant exec director

Daniel Bush to focus on contract enforcement and organizing

The Directors Guild of America has tapped labor attorney Daniel Bush as assistant exec director.

Bush will focus on contract enforcement and organizing efforts in the newly created position. He’ll report to Bryan Unger, associate national exec director and Western exec director.

“Danny’s labor relations experience and his knowledge of contracts and organizing will be in high demand as the DGA expands its coverage of these areas and prepares for major contract negotiations next year,” said DGA national exec director Jay Roth in announcing the appointment.

Bush comes to the DGA after working since 2008 for the Glendale-based law firm Bush Gottlieb Singer Lopez Kohanski Adelstein and Dickinson, where he represented public and private sector labor unions and served as lead negotiator for the Service Employees Intl. Union (SEIU) and the Mineworkers ILWU Local 30. He also worked for SEIU as an organizer.
