‘Marriage Boot Camp’ Editors Go on Strike

Members of the post-production crew on WE TV’s “Marriage Boot Camp” have gone on strike to unionize under a contract with the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees.

Picketing began Tuesday outside the Los Angeles offices of Thinkfactory Media, the show’s production company.

“All members, prospective members, and other post-production professionals are instructed to refrain from rendering service to this production for the duration of the work stoppage,” said IATSE Local 700 on its Facebook page. 

ThinkFactory did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Marriage Boot Camp” is in its fifth season with four of the eight episodes having aired. In each season, five couples perform a number of exercises to see if their marriages are worth saving.

Local 700 also tweeted a photo of the picketing.

Update: The strike has ended after lasting 9 hours, as an agreement between “Marriage Boot Camp” producers at Thinkfactory and IATSE reps has been reached. The production and postproduction staff will be allowed to unionize.
