The International successfully organizes the Roundabout Theatre Company in New York City

In the fall of 1998, the International, with the assistance from Locals One, 764, and 798 successfully organized the Roundabout Theatre Company in New York City.  The Roundabout is a member of the League of Regional Theaters, a non-profit organization that is Tony Award eligible.  The Roundabout is a ticket subscription employer with over 40,000 subscribers.   The International filed an NLRB petition for a production unit covering Stage, Wardrobe and Make-up & Hair crafts.  The number of individuals eligible to vote in the election was 50 stagehands, 35 wardrobe and 6 make-up and hair stylists.  The International won the election with only one “no” vote being recorded.  All individuals were brought into the appropriate local unions.
