In 2000, the membership of the United Scenic Artists Local 829 voted to disaffiliate from the International Brotherhood of Painters and Allied Trades and re-affiliate with the IATSE after having been separated for almost 100 years.  The IBPAT failed in its efforts to put the local in trusteeship to block the disaffiliation vote.
