IATSE Locals Unanimously Ratify New Hollywood Basic Agreement

In March of 2009, the 15 Hollywood-based locals representing over 35,000 members of the IATSE working in motion picture and television production ratified the new Hollywood Basic Agreement with the AMPTP.  The three year contract, which will go into effect August 1, 2009, was tentatively agreed to last November, with drafting completed last month.

After each of the 15 locals covered under the new contract ratified the agreement, President Loeb remarked, “We have delivered a strong contract in a very chaotic economic climate.  We feel we have given our members the best protection we can at a time when the bottom is falling out of a lot of traditional business models.  We look forward to three years of labor stability and a commitment to keeping our members working.”
