AEA Supports Local 500/IATSE at Kravis Center

IATSE Announces Agreement with NETworks

From the Actors’ Equity official website (www.actorsequity.org):

“Today (12/20/12), the National Council of Actors’ Equity met and voted unanimously to officially lend its support to Local 500/IATSE in its 12-year struggle to achieve a fair and equitable contract with the Kravis Center (West Palm Beach, FL). The safety of Equity’s members is paramount. Without the skills and expertise of our IATSE brothers and sisters who load in and run Equity touring productions, Equity believes our member’s safety would be at risk. AEA also strongly believes that audience members expect, pay for and deserve a professional cast, professional musicians and professional stagehands.”
