IATSE vs. Major Studios & Streamers

 As a follow-up to the IATSE labor negotiations with the film and TV studios and content streamers, there seems to be a ratification vote in the offing.

The Union announced, on Saturday night, that a deal had been made. However, the deal received a hostile reception for the rank and file.

Strike signs are ready to go

But Union officials remain confident that the deal will be ratified. According to Salvador Rerez, president of the Costume Designers Guild, "Some members had unrealistic expectations that were never going to be fulfilled. We will now have a better contract than we ever had before, and we avoid a work stoppage."

The deal must be approved by a majority vote of the 60,000+ members - the voting is online. The Union released a Fact Sheet on the agreement. 

This is where things stand. If ratified it will avert a strike that would put a halt to all film and TV production throughout the country.
