IATSE released the following statement in connection with the publication of a letter of support from UNI Global Union affiliates on March 14, 2024: 

“IATSE thanks our labor kin in the global community of entertainment unions for their strong support during this year’s negotiations. We are in a new era of unprecedented solidarity in the labor movement in America and abroad. In a world where behind-the-scenes unions stand shoulder-to-shoulder, employers will have a harder time trying to outrun the protections of strong collective bargaining agreements.”
