IA Organizes E! Channel

IA President Short Appoints Safety Chairman

The IATSE has reached an agreement with cable station E! Channel to represent employees covering the red carpet for both pre- and post-awards show telecasts for the 2007 Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild, Grammys, and Oscars broadcasts.

The deal will be covered under the FRB Productions banner and will represent employees who work live broadcasts, including camera, sound, and videotape personnel. The deal was agreed to when the IA established that it already represented a majority of FRB’s crew.

The agreement is part of the IA’s ongoing organizing of freelance broadcast technicians who cover live events such as awards shows and live sports events.
