IA President Short Appoints Safety Chairman

Rank and file members from two separate bargaining units overwhelmingly ratified individual contracts covering workers at both KTTV and Fox Digital in Los Angeles, International President Thomas C. Short announced. The four-year contracts, that were negotiated simultaneously, guarantee annual wage increases and maintenance of the pension and health plan benefits.

International Vice President Michael F. Miller, Jr. led the negotiating committee that was made up of representatives of IA locals 33, 700, 705, 706 and 800. Production and post-production crafts covered under the contract include stagecraft, hair and make-up, costumers, scenic and graphic designers and editorial personnel.

“We are pleased that these contracts were ratified with such enthusiasm by our members. Providing continuity in the work place benefits both our members and the companies,” President Short stated.
