IATSE Canada logo

Toronto, ON – Over the last year, IATSE Local 411 was approached by honeywagon operators looking for representation. Local 411 certified a number of the largest honeywagon companies by winning representation votes under the Labour Relations Act. After being certified as the bargaining agent, Local 411, with the assistance of the International, commenced negotiation of an industry-wide agreement with the CFTPA (Canadian Film and Television Production Association).

Negotiations concluded recently, and on March 6, 2004, the honeywagon operators ratified the contract with an overwhelming majority. The agreement provides for guaranteed minimum rates and the introduction of health benefits. Further, there is a considerable improvement to current industry working conditions.
