IATSE and AMPTP Reach Agreement for New Three-Year Area Standards Agreement

The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, Moving Picture Technicians, Artists and Allied Crafts (IATSE) and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) have tentatively agreed on terms of a new three-year Area Standards Agreement. 

The contract, which covers most of the United States outside Los Angeles and New York, addresses a number of matters and provides stability and certainty for the producers, as well as important terms and conditions for IATSE members. Notably, the agreement includes contributions to the IATSE Entertainment and Exhibition Industries Training Trust Fund for the first time. The Training Trust will provide safety training for motion picture workers covered by the contract. 

The new agreement is for the period of August 1, 2015, through July 31, 2018.
