IATSE Endorses Hillary Clinton for President

January 14, 2016 | By

The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) has endorsed Hillary Clinton for President of the United States.

The IATSE general executive board voted unanimously to endorse the former U.S. Secretary of State based on her long record of fighting for workers’ rights and working families.

“Hillary Clinton is the only candidate who reached out to discuss issues affecting members of the IATSE,” said Matthew Loeb, IATSE International president. “She spent her valuable time discussing our unique issues and challenges with me, demonstrating not just her support of workers in general, but also that she is concerned with the well being of members of the IATSE.”

In July 2015, Loeb released a statement in support of Clinton calling out companies that misclassified workers as independent contractors, an issue that directly affects workers represented by the IATSE.
