IATSE Successfully Organizes Cincinnati Film Production

IA President Short Appoints Safety Chairman

Representatives of Local 209 (Frank McKeon) Local 600 (Jason Rosin) and IATSE (Scott Harbinson) were successful in their attempt to organize a $1.5 million film entitled “Artworks”, shooting in Cincinnati, Ohio. Representatives negotiated through the night to avert a strike that would have taken place at call the next morning. The contract provided for benefits retroactive to date of hire for all covered employees. Lower paid employees received immediate pay increases and some others enjoyed increases later in the agreement. The agreement was concluded on May 10, 2002.
