IATSE Wins Right to Rep Trio Video

IATSE Organizes Fox Sports Net North

Freelance broadcast technicians employed by Trio Video in Chicago, IL voted overwhelmingly in favor of representation by IATSE, it was announced by International President Thomas C. Short. The election was held on March 2, 2005.

Prior to the vote, the election was tripartite involving the IATSE and the IBEW, with each entity claiming an interest in representing the employees. The ballot count resulted in the IATSE garnering 39 votes; employees favoring no representation numbered 13; and one lone vote for IBEW.

Trio Video provides broadcast trucking services to Comcast Sports Net in the Chicago area. Employees who will be covered under the agreement include technical directors, camera operators, videotape operators, digital recording device operators, audio technicians, graphics operators, utility technicians, and score box operators.
