IATSE Organizes Fox Sports Net North

The IATSE continues to rack up contracts with sports broadcast companies across the country. International President Thomas C. Short announced the latest ratification vote of 72 to 6 in favor of the contract negotiated with Yankee Entertainment and Sports Network.

IATSE Local 100 members who are television broadcasting remote and studio members have ratified the contract, effective April 4, 2005, that provides immediate pension, health and welfare and annuity contributions.

“In a time of increasing anti-union and anti-worker sentiment, the IATSE continues to tackle these sports broadcasting companies one-by-one. We are proving to the workers and to the employers that we will prevail and protect our jobs and our members,” Short stated.
