After months of negotiations – and leafleting several performances -- Strathmore ticket office employees have finally settled a contract. The three-year agreement with members of IATSE 868 includes wage increases and extending and protecting health insurance and retirement benefits. Local 868 Business Agent Anita Wilkinson said the Strathmore workers “stuck together to assure they got a contract they were satisfied with.” It’s the first contract for the Strathmore ticket office workers, who -- joined by members of other IATSE locals and area unions -- leafleted several performances in recent months to generate support for their negotiations. The union said that the agreement “will serve as the foundation upon which Strathmore and IATSE Local 868 will build a mutually beneficial long-term relationship.” Wilkinson added that "We have plans to keep working with other box offices to assure the same benefits." photo: January 2 leafleting at Strathmore; photo courtesy IATSE 868 Twitter
