IATSE International and The Broadway League/Disney Theatrical Productions Reach Tentative Agreement for New Pink Contract (Effective January 1, 2013 – December 31, 2015)

IATSE Announces Agreement with NETworks

After a lengthy process spread over five months, culminating in a fifteen-hour marathon session that ended in the early morning on May 2, 2013, the IATSE International and The Broadway League/Disney Theatrical Productions have reached a tentative agreement for a new three (3) year contract.

In addition to wage increases, a primary goal for President Loeb and the Union negotiators was to address challenging travel conditions faced by workers on these tours. Thus, the agreement includes premium pay for load-outs on multiple show days and for travel after a short-rest period, first time additional pay for make-up artists and hairstylists traveling on a seventh day, as well as first-time overage participation (i.e. bonus) for workers on successful tiered tours. The Agreement includes significant employer contributions to the health and pension plans for workers on tiered tours and wage increases for workers in all categories. It also includes employer contributions to the IATSE Training Trust.

President Loeb extended his appreciation to the workers on the road who provided comments to the bargaining committee and especially to the rank-and-file workers who served as members of the committee. The observations from these members informed the Union’s positions and decisions and helped the Union secure a good contract on behalf of all traveling workers under the Agreement.
