Largest Federal Employee Union Supports IATSE Members in Fight for Fair Contract

Ahead of potential strike, AFGE calls on motion picture industry to negotiate with union over basic improvements in working conditions

WASHINGTON – The American Federation of Government Employees strongly supports the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) in its demands for the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers to provide union members with basic improvements in their working conditions.

“Film and television production companies generate record profits off the backs of union members who bring their productions to life. These workers deserve a fair contract that addresses basic working standards like reasonable time between shifts, meal breaks, livable wages, and fair benefits,” AFGE National President Everett Kelley said.

“As the largest union representing federal and D.C. government workers, and a fellow affiliate of the AFL-CIO, AFGE strongly supports IATSE in its fight for better working conditions for its members.”
