Hollywood Basic Local Negotiations Update: Local 705 Becomes 11th To Reach Tentative Agreement With AMPTP

The Motion Picture Costumers, IATSE Local 705, reached a tentative agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) on Wednesday.

Currently, 11 of the 13 West Coast Studio Locals (80, 600, 695, 705, 706, 729, 800, 700, 728, 871 and 892) have reached tentative agreements with the AMPTP. Both Affiliated Property Craftspersons Local 44 and the Studio Teachers, IATSE Local 884, are still in negotiations with the AMPTP.

International Vice President Mike Miller commented, “These productive talks are a result of the leadership shown by the negotiation committees for the West Coast Studio Locals, many of whom were new to the process. We look forward to entering the next phase of this calendar.”

Basic Agreement General Negotiations, which cover issues like wage increases, pension and health contributions, artificial intelligence (AI), quality of life conditions, job security and residuals, are tentatively scheduled to restart on April 29 and run through May 16.

Meanwhile, additional information regarding the Local agreements will be provided to members in various forms by their Local Unions after Memorandums of Agreement have been formally drafted by the lawyers of both parties and submitted to the corresponding Local for approval.
