Stage union steps up organizing effort
If you – or someone you know – is doing stage work in the DC area, IATSE Local 22 wants to sign you up. The local has stepped up outreach in the local theater scene to let folks know how the union can help improve skills in different areas of entertain-ment technology, as well as career and personal goals. And Local 22 is putting its money where its mouth is, dropping initiation fees from $2,000 to $500. They also launched a special email address – [email protected] – where area theater techs can reach out with “any questions you have about the local, unions, membership, organizing, or other entertainment industry technician issues,” says Local 22 president Chuck Clay. Candidates must have worked in stagecraft or AV & Projection in the area for at least 12 months and lived in the area for at least 18 months.
