‘Shahs of Sunset’ Protests Staged by Union in New York City, Los Angeles

Supporters of fired post-production editors on Bravo’s “Shahs of Sunset” have staged simultaneous protests outside NBCUniversal facilities in New York and Los Angeles.

The Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees included giant inflatable rats outside of NBCUniversal headquarters at 30 Rockefeller Center in New York and outside of the gates to Universal Studios in Los Angeles.

The demonstrations came three days after the union filed unfair labor practice charges against Bravo Media over the dismissal of the “Shahs of Sunset” editing crew. The crew of 16 was dismissed last week by Ryan Seacrest Productions and Bravo Media.

The editors have been on strike since Sept. 10 in an effort to secure a union contract. Bravo announced on Sept. 11 that it had indefinitely delayed the fourth season of the series, which had been set to begin airing Oct. 13.

“This fight is no longer a simple dispute about health insurance or other contractual terms,” said Alan Heim, president of the Motion Picture Editors Guild. “It’s about employees’ fundamental right to organize, free from their employer’s retaliation. That right has been enshrined in federal law for the better part of a century, but Bravo has now demonstrated its thorough contempt for its crew members and those employees’ rights.”
