August 5, 2010 – The International Brotherhood of Teamsters and the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees have entered into an agreement to work together toward common goals.
The pact sets out how the Unions will address organizing efforts, deal with jurisdictional issues and establishes new lines of communication aimed at strengthening the relationship.
A joint committee will be established to oversee the efforts of the two unions, which both service motion picture and television productions throughout the industry.
The Executive Boards of both unions unanimously ratified the agreement in a strong showing of unity and solidarity.
President Loeb stated that “the IA and the Teamsters are natural allies and the obvious beneficiaries to this Pact are the members of both unions.”
