IATSE Basic Agreement - download


Basic Agreement contracts are temporarily extended while under renegotiation. Rates will be retroactive upon ratification.

Project may reflect an independent or major contract, but if you are a local hire in New York, the Post Production (New York amendment) rates and provisions will apply.

These rates are provided for general information purposes. Not all rates are listed. If there is a discrepancy between the rate card and the collective bargaining agreement, the latter is controlling.


Employers may request access to view the Available for Work List or post a union job on the Job Board.
