Global Spectrum

A report was made on the recently concluded negotiations with Global Spectrum, a Philadelphia-based company that operates arenas in Philadelphia and in other cities in the United States.  

The Philadelphia facilities have contracts with Local No. 8. Vice President Barnes and Local No. 8 were instrumental in getting the Company to negotiate agreements for its other arenas. The new National Agreement does not cover arenas currently under contract to IATSE Local Unions.

Global Spectrum operates seventeen separate facilities, eight of which have contracts with IATSE Locals. The current contract is for a term of three years. It provides for benefit contributions to the IATSE National Health and Welfare, Pension and Annuity Funds or affiliated funds of IATSE local unions.

The Board unanimously ratified the Agreement and noted that this is one of the most significant contracts of the last several years.
