IA President Short Appoints Safety Chairman

One week into production, more than 100 crew members of the new NBC reality show “S.T.R.O.N.G.” are now working under an IATSE agreement.

The reality show “S.T.R.O.N.G. (Start to Realize Our Natural Greatness)” comes from Biggest Loser creator Dave Broome and will be executive produced by Sylvester Stallone.

The IATSE supports good jobs for all workers. These entertainment workers now have strong working conditions, wages, and health and retirement benefits, all from date of hire. “S.T.R.O.N.G.” shoots through December in Los Angeles and will provide thousands of hours of benefits to these workers.

Remember: Report your non-union job on day one, whether you’re in pre-production, production or post-production; on a Network show, web project, feature, or a basic cable production.
