Latest IATSE Contract Update – Waiting for AMPTP Counter Proposal


IATSEThe IATSE Basic Agreement site was updated on Thursday, Sept. 16 with the latest on the contract negotiations for the agreement which lapsed on Sept. 10.

The update says that the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) has presented the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) with its package proposal. It’s now waiting for AMPTP’s response or counter proposal.

September 16, 2021

We presented the AMPTP with our latest package proposal on the evening of Sunday, September 12. They have not submitted a counter proposal, though lines of communication remain open. The Union remains committed to getting an acceptable contract that recognizes the value our highly skilled and experienced members bring to this industry, which includes addressing longstanding health and safety issues that have plagued our worksites for decades. Meanwhile, member mobilization is ongoing as we prepare for either a contract ratification or a strike authorization vote. You should continue to report to work. We will notify you as more information becomes available.

In Solidarity
