On May 4, 2009 a press conference was held at which International President Matthew Loeb, on behalf of the International and all New York City local unions, announced the IATSE’s endorsement of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg for a third term.

The endorsement came as a result of the Mayor’s success in getting an affirmative vote to extending term limits.   In November, 2008, the local unions unanimously agreed to provide their support for Mayor Bloomberg due to his favorable positions and assistance in providing employment opportunities for those in the entertainment industry.

The press conference was held at the IATSE General Office and was attended by officers, representatives and staff of the International and the New York City local unions.
