IATSE and AMPTP Reach Agreement for New Three-Year Area Standards Agreement


The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, Moving Picture Technicians, Artists and Allied Crafts (IATSE) and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) have tentatively agreed on terms of a new three-year area standards agreement.

Notably, the agreement includes contributions to the IATSE entertainment and exhibition industries training trust fund for the first time. The training trust will provide safety training for motion picture workers covered by the contract. Other details of the agreement are not being released, but if ratified, it would cover the period of Aug. 1, 2015-July 31, 2018. It applies to most of the United States outside Los Angeles and New York.

“This is a solid contract that addresses important issues for our members. Supporting the training trust will make everyone on motion picture sets safer, an initiative wholeheartedly supported by both sides of the table,” stated IATSE international president Matthew Loeb.

“The new agreement not only provides stability and certainty to production, but also creates a strategic alliance between labor and management to provide safety training for those who work under it,” said AMPTP president Carol Lombardini.
