IATSE Charters Two New Locals in Newfoundland

Friday, April 5, 2013

ST. JOHN'S, NL, Apr 2 – Today the International issued the charters for the newest locals of the IATSE:  Local 709 (Mixed) and Local 671 (International Cinematographers Guild).  A celebration was held and it seemed all of Newfoundland came for the party.  Local producers welcomed the new locals, including Republic of Doyle producer John Vatcher, who also happens to be a charter member of the new camera local.  All were welcomed by officers and members from Locals 849, 667, 709, and 671.

For many years, Locals 849 and 667 have served as the bargaining agent for motion picture technicians and camerapersons in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.  As of April 2, members of Locals 849 and 667 who reside in Newfoundland and Labrador have the option to transfer their memberships to the new locals.  International President Matthew D. Loeb stated, "The chartering of these locals reflects the increasing talent pool of technicians in Newfoundland and Labrador."

The IATSE is an International Union that represents members employed in the stagecraft, motion picture and television production, and trade show industries throughout the United States, its Territories, and Canada.
