“Steve” Post Crew Wins Union Contract!

“Steve” Post Crew Wins Union Contract!

Thanks to the crew's solidarity and the support shown to them by the broader post-production community, SH Production Company, LLC has agreed to sign an IATSE contract to cover the “Steve” editorial team!

Under the agreement, all editorial crew members on the new talk show will now receive Motion Picture Industry health and retirement benefits and industry-standard working conditions. Assistant editors will see a substantial improvement in their base wages.

The deal was reached after multiple displays of solidarity in the worksite, showings of support for the crew on social media, and handbilling of the show's studio audience. No interruption of the work schedule was necessary.

This past weekend some of our members hosted a panel with @PaffNow! The African American Steering Committee on Post Production had a discussion with some of the most successful film production professionals in the business. It was definitely an event you had to be there for. 😍 Thanks @anedra_the_editor for this amazing photo alongside @biggamejamez2 @leandersales #AimeeJennings & #BobbiBanks! More...

Motion picture editorial employees of Bento Box Entertainment, an animation studio owned by Fox, have overwhelmingly elected to unionize with the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) and its post-production local, the Motion Picture Editors Guild. Bento Box has agreed to recognize the editors’ union after an arbitrator verified that a majority of the employees had signed union authorization cards. Under card-check agreements, employers agree to honor a union’s majority status on the basis of an independent third party’s confirmation that a majority of the employees have signed statements officially authorizing the union to represent them. After the workers secure union recognition through card-check, the parties begin negotiations on a first union contract. Read more about this good news at Cinemontage.com 😁 More...
